Joy of the Gospel: Mark Francis, CSV

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, CTU President Mark Francis, CSV, reflects on the quote, "More than by fear of going astray, the Pope wishes that we will be moved by the fear of remaining shut up within structures which give us a false sense of security, within rules which make us harsh judges, within habits which make us feel safe, while at our door people are starving and Jesus does not tire of saying to us: "Give them something to eat" (Mk 6:37)." Evangelii Gaudium [49] 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.
