Joy of the Gospel: Rev. Richard Fragomeni

February 28, 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, Rev. Richard Fragomeni reflects on the quote, Sometimes we are tempted to find excuses and complain, acting as if we could only be happy if a thousand conditions were met. To some extent this is because our "technological society has succeeded in multiplying occasions of pleasure, yet has found it very difficult to engender joy." Evangelii Gaudium  [7] 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.
