Description
 
The Joy of the Gospel is a passionate call for every Christian to “be constantly ready to bring the love of Jesus to others.” In this apostolic exhortation, Pope Francis responds to the suggestions of the 2012 Synod of Bishops on the New Evangelization by outlining a roadmap for the Church’s pastoral mission and work in the world. He envisions a Church of “Spirit-filled evangelizers” who exude joy and care for God’s people, especially the poor. Instead of retreating into our own security, he says, we must not be afraid to have our “shoes get soiled by the mud of the street.” Pope Francis warns against spiritual worldliness, disunity, and a spirit of pessimism or defeatism.

From a discussion of economic justice to a call for new decision-making roles for women in the Church, The Joy of the Gospel is thought provoking, wide-ranging, and challenging to every Catholic. Those who carefully read it, study it, and pray with it will be ready to take up, with the whole Church, this “new phase of evangelization, one marked by enthusiasm and vitality”—and, most especially, joy.
