In Search of a Story: An Advent pastoral note from Archbishop Aquila

Brothers and Sisters, in my last pastoral note, on Ash Wednesday, I wrote of “Our Apostolic Moment,” this unique “change of eras” in which we find ourselves as Christendom ends and a new apostolic age dawns.
To build the kingdom of God in a time of apostolic mission invites our institutions and each of us to embark on an even greater “missionary conversion” (Evangelii Gaudium 30). This is not to say that everything we have been doing to date is wrong; it is simply to acknowledge that the cultural sands have shifted under our feet and that we have to respond.
I am writing this pastoral note to propose that the first change Christ is calling us to, as an archdiocese, is not found in what we do, but in how we see.
