The Joy of the Gospel, an Apostolic Letter recently written by Pope Francis, is a passionate call for every Christian to be constantly ready to bring the love of Jesus to others. He envisions a church of Spirit-filled evangelizers who exude joy and care for God’s people, especially the poor. "Evangelii Gaudium" is thought provoking, wide-ranging, and challenging to every Christian. 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.
