Encounter and uscita

The idea of encounter / meeting is central in Evangelii Gaudium, because it corresponds to the invitation to set out on the path of pastoral and missionary conversion. This idea seems to be at the origin of the "outward / outgoing movement" (dinamismo dell'uscita) to which Pope Francis invites the whole church. Encounter is at the basis of missionary action through personal testimony.

Going out of ourselves involves encounter, meeting people. Because the faith is the encounter with Jesus, and we are invited to do what the Lord has done: meeting others.
