The Joy of the Gospel
Evangelii Gaudium

“I have chosen to present some guidelines which can encourage and guide the whole Church in a new phase of evangelization, one marked by enthusiasm and vitality… I have decided, among other themes, to discuss at length the following questions:
· the reform of the Church in her missionary outreach
· the temptations faced by pastoral workers
· the Church, understood as the entire People of God which evangelizes
· the homily and its preparation
· the inclusion of the poor in society
· peace and dialogue within society
· the spiritual motivations for mission”

(Evangelii Gaudium 17)
