featuring video with Jane E. Regan and Thomas H. Groome
In Evangelii Gaudium, Pope Francis calls us to embrace a vision of a church that engages us in the joy of the gospel. He suggests that such engagement can become an infectious invitation to those around us to join in this joy. Video segments featuring Jane E Regan and Thomas H. Groome help us understand the continuity in the Catholic Tradition of the theme of evangelization, the meaning of “new evangelization,” and some approaches to becoming an evangelizing community. Take this opportunity to read Pope Francis’s document and reflect on your own faith community as a local presence of Gospel joy in the 21 Century.
