A series of reflections for the parish on Pope Francis’ The Joy of the Gospel
Part 3: Keeping on the Move with Jesus
In our next quote from The Joy of the Gospel, Pope Francis calls upon Pope St. John Paul II to help make his point. This is paragraph 23:
The Church’s closeness to Jesus is part of a common journey; “communion and mission are profoundly interconnected.*” In fidelity to the example of the Master, it is vitally important for the Church today to go forth and preach the Gospel to all: to all places, on all occasions, without hesitation, reluctance or fear.
