The Mission of the Church – Part Eight

The Mission of the Church – The Joy of the Gospel/Conclusion

Francis congratulates those already working for the good of the Church, while warning about the specific temptations that face those within the institutional church. An inordinate emphasis on the individual has been a detriment to the mission of the Church, leading to inflated egos and “spiritual worldliness”. Francis’ exhortation gives Christians a wake-up call to take part in the Church’s mission. This call to mission was the fundamental focus of Vatican II. It is as timely today as ever.
