“The Joy of the Gospel”

On Tuesday morning, Pope Francis released his first Apostolic Exhortation, called Evangelii Gaudium, or “The Joy of the Gospel.” I read the opening lines (below), and they definitely compelled me to keep reading! His words are relevant to all Christians, Catholic or not.

“The joy of the gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus. Those who accept his offer of salvation are set free from sin, sorrow, inner emptiness and loneliness. With Christ joy is constantly born anew.”
