Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization Confirmed

In this perspective, I have decided to create a new organism, in the form of a pontifical council, with the specific task of promoting a renewed evangelization in countries where the first proclamation of the faith already resounded, and where Churches are present of ancient foundation, but which are going through a progressive secularization of society and a sort of "eclipse of the sense of God," which constitutes a challenge to find the appropriate means to propose again the perennial truth of the Gospel of Christ.

—Pope Benedict XVI, Homily at 1st Vespers of SS Peter and Paul, 28th June 2010
