Joy of the Gospel: Gina Wolfe

March 11, 2014:

Catholic Theological Union's Joy of the Gospel series gives insight into Evangelii Gaudium through select passages which illuminate the vision of Pope Francis for the Church.

In this episode, Gina Wolfe, reflects on the quote, "This is why I want a Church which is poor and for the poor. They have much to teach us. Not only do they share in the sensus fidei, but in their difficulties, they know the suffering Christ. We need to let ourselves be evangelized by them. The new evangelization is an invitation to acknowledge the saving power at work in their lives and to put them at the centre of the Church's pilgrim way. We are called to find Christ in them, to lend our voice to their causes, but also to be their friends, to listen to them, to speak for them and to embrace the mysterious wisdom which God wishes to share with us through them." Evangelii Gaudium [198]

This series is for Catholics and those from other faith traditions who want to learn more about this powerful document in a format that is both substantive and accessible.
