The Joy of the Gospel
In his Apostolic Exhortation The Joy of the Gospel, Pope Francis challenges all of us to embark on “a new chapter of evangelization.” This presentation will examine what this might mean in a world “pervaded as it is by consumerism…desolation and anguish born of a complacent yet covetous heart.”
