The Joy of the Gospel

Pope FrancisPlease join the Sisters Home Visitors of Mary in their living celebration of “The Joy of the Gospel” (Evangelii Gaudium), the Apostolic Exhortation issued by Pope Francis on November 24, 2013.   The Sisters HVM invest their lives in communion with the principles and precepts articulated by Pope Francis in this historic document.

It begins thus:  “The joy of the Gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus.  Those who accept his offer of salvation are set free from sin, sorrow, inner emptiness and loneliness.  With Christ joy is constantly born anew.  In this Exhortation I wish to encourage the Christian faithful to embark upon a new chapter of evangelization marked by this joy, while  pointing out new paths for the Church’s journey in years to come.”
