Description: “If there is anyone in the world today who embodies the joy of the Christian Gospel, it is Jorge Mario Bergoglio. And the happiness offered by embracing and living true faith in Christ and His Church (rather than the vapid sentimentalism that often passes for love these days) permeates Pope Francis’s new (and rather long) apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium, from beginning to end. Reading the text, one does experience a profound sense of just how life-transforming belief in Christ should be.” That’s how Sam Gregg begins his piece the Pope’s exhortation. Sam joins us to discuss poverty, the Pope and Evangelii Gaudium.
