1. THE JOY OF THE GOSPEL fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus. Those who accept his offer of salvation are set free from sin, sorrow, inner emptiness and loneliness. With Christ joy is constantly born anew. In this Exhortation I wish to encourage the Christian faithful to embark upon a new chapter of evangelization marked by this joy, while pointing out new paths for the Church’s journey in years to come.

Fortuitous that we move from the Year of Faith, from this concluding document spurring the Church to deeper evangelization, and of course, joy. And that we are entering into a most joyful cycle, the seasons of Advent and Christmas. A good start for this document, I think.

    I wonder if “pointing out new paths for the Church’s journey” is a reference to Paul VI’s Ecclesiam Suam, given how often Francis has quoted the former pontiff.
