Urgent need for inculturation

59. On several occasions the Synod Fathers stressed the particular importance for evangelization of inculturation, the process by which "catechesis ?takes flesh' in the various cultures".86 Inculturation includes two dimensions: on the one hand, "the intimate transformation of authentic cultural values through their integration in Christianity" and, on the other, "the insertion of Christianity in the various human cultures".87 The Synod considers inculturation an urgent priority in the life of the particular Churches, for a firm rooting of the Gospel in Africa.88 It is "a requirement for evangelization",89 "a path towards full evangelization",90 and one of the greatest challenges for the Church on the Continent on the eve of the Third Millennium.91
