E-mail Print PDF

pope__francisPope Francis has issued his first Apostolic Exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium, “The Joy of the Gospel”, on the proclamation of the Gospel in today’s world. The text is addressed to the Bishops, clergy, consecrated persons and lay faithful, and was presented today, November 26, 2013, during a news conference by the Press Office of the Holy See. The Holy Father already gave a copy of his Exhortation this past Sunday to 36 representatives of the Church during the Closing Mass for the Year of Faith. The main chapters of the Exhortation are on the following themes: the Church’s missionary transformation; the crisis of communal commitment; the proclamation of the Gospel; the social dimension of evangelization; and Spirit-filled evangelizers. Printed copies of the Exhortation will be on sale this coming January from CCCB Publications.
