‘The Joy of the Gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus.’
- Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium
What if believers were to live in the contemporary world as people who hear the Word of God ‘in the deep heart’s core’? It would affect our perception of every person and every sphere of life. We would see that everything in the life of the Church is there to bring the Good News to the world of today.
Pope Francis recently spoke of ‘the joy of the Gospel’. This book shows how the words of the Gospel speak to every area of our lives, helping us to experience the warmth and healing that comes from hearing the proclamation: ‘Jesus Christ has saved you’, and to discover the depth, poetry, faith and love at the heart of the Gospel.
