Excerpt from Pope Francis’ exhortation “Joy of the Gospel” #9


Dear Friends: Once again I have the privilege of sharing another excerpt from the exhortation of the pope “Joy of the Gospel”. It once again is on the “joy” of our salvation in Jesus Christ.

Please read and share your thoughts. Please share if you are touched in some way by it and like it. I’d enjoy hearing from you.

” Perhaps the most exciting invitation is that of the prophet Zephaniah, who presents God with his people in the midst of a celebration overflowing with the joy of salvation. I find it thrilling to reread this text” ‘The Lord, your God is in your midst, a warrior who gives you victory; he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love; he will exult over you with loud singing, as on the day of festival'”(3:17).
