El Arzobispo Rino Fisichella, Presidente del Pontificio Consejo para la promoci贸n de la Nueva Evangelizaci贸n, considera que el estilo de la primera Exhortaci贸n Apost贸lica del Papa Francisco Evangelii Gaudium "llega directamente al coraz贸n y a la mente de las personas."

ROMA (ACI/EWTN Noticias) - "El Papa Francisco habla as铆, de una manera directa, f谩cil, comunicativa, de manera que llega directamente al coraz贸n y a la mente de las personas, y por tanto conecta con ese lenguaje que todos utilizamos en la vida normal de cada d铆a," explic贸 Mons. Fisichella este martes en entrevista concedida a ACI Prensa en la Sala Stampa de la Santa Sede.

"La Iglesia no tiene un camino paralelo o distinto del hombre de hoy, tiene el mismo camino, y el Evangelio debe entrar en el coraz贸n de las personas y debe hacer entender el gran misterio de la revelaci贸n, es decir: Dios ama al hombre", expres贸 Mons. Fisichella.

"Desde esta perspectiva creo que sea tambi茅n muy importante entender que tambi茅n es un lenguaje que recurre tambi茅n a las im谩genes, y por tanto, la evangelizaci贸n, para ser m谩s posible y directa debe recurrir tambi茅n a esto", a艅adi贸.

Para Mons. Fisichella el objetivo principal del texto es hablar de la Nueva Evangelizaci贸n, "de la necesidad de comunicarse con los hombres de hoy d铆a por parte de los cristianos".

"Esta es una Exhortaci贸n ante todo dirigida a los cristianos para que recuperen el esp铆ritu misionero, para que sean capaces de comprender la urgencia que esto tiene en la vida del bautizado", dijo.

"Pero esto tambi茅n tiene la exigencia de que la Iglesia descubra cu谩l es el coraz贸n, qui茅nes son los verdaderos destinatarios. El Papa nos dice que los verdaderos destinatarios son aquellos que tienen un valor importante, es decir: los pobres, los que sufren, los marginados. Ellos son los primeros a los que debe ir el pensamiento de la Iglesia y tambi茅n su directa acci贸n pastoral", indic贸.

Aunque la exhortaci贸n apost贸lica Evangelii Gaudium del Papa Francisco se entreg贸 a 36 personas el domingo 24 de noviembre, en la clausura del A艅o de la Fe, su contenido no se conoc铆a sino hasta ahora.

El texto en espa艅ol tiene una extensi贸n de 142 p谩ginas y est谩 dividido en una introducci贸n y cinco cap铆tulos titulados: "La transformaci贸n misionera de la Iglesia", "En la crisis del compromiso comunitario", "El anuncio del Evangelio", "La dimensi贸n social de la Evangelizaci贸n" y "Evangelizadores con esp铆ritu".

El Arzobispo Fisichella dialog贸 con ACI Prensa pocos minutos despu茅s de la presentaci贸n a la prensa en el Vaticano de Evangelii Gaudium, en la que tambi茅n participaron el Presidente del Pontificio Consejo para las Comunicaciones Sociales, Arzobispo Claudio Mar铆a Celli, y el Secretario General del S铆nodo de los Obispos, Mons. Lorenzo Baldisseri.
