Gospel Joy: Following the example of Our Lady

Tuesday, February 25, 2014
From the very beginning of the pontificate of Pope Francis, he has placed great emphasis on Mary, the Mother of God.

Friday, February 07, 2014
Pope Francis’s apostolic exhortation represents a summons of all Christians to mission and so in one way or another every section of this somewhat lengthy document is directed towards preaching the Gospel. Yet if I were to pick out one strand of thought that seemed to me to be particularly relevant, it would be Pope Francis’s warning that a crippling inferiority complex has emerged among Catholics in the scandal-hit West that threatens to suffocate the proclamation of the Gospel. In short, the Pope warns, we are in danger of being shamed into silence.  Read more
