Pontifical Council for New Evangelization

An article by John Allen of the National Catholic Reporter dated Sunday April 25 reports that Pope Benedict XVI will soon announce the creation of a Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization to be headed by Archbishop Fisichella. This council witnesses to the close connection between Pope Benedict and the Catholic lay movement Communion and Liberation, which has been a profound influence on the Holy Father for many years now. Here is Allen's article "Report: Pope to launch 'Pontifical Council for New Evangelization'". Also, if you can read Italian, below is the link to the newspaper Il Giornale cited by Allen as his source of information for this news.
