The article discusses the tendencies in the process of evangelical service of the Catholic Church to convert to Christianity, namely proclamation and dialogue. The author argues that the principle that makes it possible for the reconciliation of proclamation and dialogue, in all their forms, is called humility in the face of transcendent truth, but its deeper name is love. The author emphasized that it is love that is the only valid goal and method of evangelization.
