What is it that brings about true progess in human affairs? It is the encounter between the Gospel and culture. I came across an address given by JPII on 15.2.04 where he spoke about this encounter as a "workshop" which bears fruit in "important and lasting values".
In my experience, the place where the encounter between the Gospel and culture first takes place is Adoration. This is the extraordinary workshop becuase it is the place where the New Evangelisation is beginning. We should not underestimate the value of those periods which we spend in Adoration. This is the place where the secular vision begins to be transformed into the great Movement of grace in our age, the New Evangelisation. The more of us who take part in this workshop, the stronger will be this Movement of grace.
