Pope Francis has published Evangelii Gaudium (The Joy of the Gospel), an Apostolic Exhortation on the Proclamation of the Gospel in Today’s World. He begins:
“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. In this Exhortation I wish to encourage the Christian faithful to embark upon a new chapter of evangelization marked by this joy, while pointing out new paths for the Church’s journey in years to come.”
