A Gift of Joy and Hope

19.99

In response to the devastating loss the world faced during the pandemic, Pope Francis was inspired to write a book to help people find hope and meaning. God is joyful, he writes. And God’s compassion is no less than the deepest expression of God’s joy, and the heart of all Christian preaching. The liberating revolution of the Gospel is encapsulated here. We are not supposed to carry burdens heavier than those we already have, but to bear witness to a new, beautiful and surprising horizon: to share a joy that has been prepared for everyone. From the anxieties of the age to the importance of nature, this book encourages readers to look outside themselves to embrace authentic beauty, change attitudes that exclude others, overcome life’s challenges with courage and, trust that joy and hope are still possible, even in challenging times; for joy has the last word – always.
