Pope Benedict: Europe is missionary territory

Each month I make sure the Pope's General and Missionary Intentions are included in the Prayers of the Faithful. I was struck by the Pope's Missionary Intention for June:
European Christians. That Christians in Europe may rediscover their true identity and participate with greater enthusiasm in the proclamation of the Gospel.
Loss of identity... lack of enthusiasm... faith fatigue... old Europe... like sheep without a shepherd... the harvest is rich... send labourers... clear in their identity... full of youthful enthusiasm for the proclamation of the Gospel... send forth Your Spirit... renew the face of Europe and the earth.
