The volume collects meditations held by Card. Carlo Maria Martini in two distinct series of spiritual exercises on the Second Letter to Timothy. Timothy is the young and faithful disciple of Paul, who lives the episcopal service in the church of Ephesus, in a community no longer joyous and fervent as in the beginning, but tired and taken with a difficult and messy environment.
This figure appears to Martini the best suited to reflect on what it means to evangelise today, to reflect on pastoral engagement. In his continuing lecture of the Second Letter to Timothy Card. Martini draws important teachings for the Church and the society of our time. Through the life experience and the message of the Apostle Paul the main issues for the Christian life today become clearer: the Christian horizon of meaning, the need to guard the “good deposit,” to proclaim the Gospel of the primacy of grace on law, the essence of the Gospel, the mystery of the Cross and the Eucharist, the relationship between pastoral letters and the “pastoral” of our time.

An intense reflection on what it means to evangelise today in the unmistakable style of Card. Carlo Maria Martini.
