10 The Joy of the Gospel: The Mission of the Trustee Evangelii Gaudium The Joy of the Gospel 2013 The Church as a Field Hospital

11 A New Attitude “When you live the Gospel don’t look like you have just come back from a funeral … open your hearts to the joy of Christ”

12 Mercy, Renewal, Missionary Impulse “I encourage each Church to undertake a resolute process of discernment, purification, and reform” “reach everyone without exception or exclusion” “the confessional must not be a torture chamber”

13 Do Justice “Authentic Faith—which is never comfortable— always involves a deep desire to change the world, to transmit values, to leave this earth better than when we found it.”

14 The Poor “Almost without being aware of it, we are incapable of feeling compassion for the poor, weeping for other people’s pain, or feeling the need to help them” “I want a Church that is poor and for the poor.”

15 The Peacemaker “Peace in society cannot be understood as pacification of the mere absence of violence … the dignity of the human person and the common good rank higher than the comfort of those who refuse to renounce their privileges …a prophetic voice must be raised”

16 Time > Space Patience to work slowly not always with immediate results Space tries to possess and limit us, it can confine to possessing spaces Time is an expression of fullness Time is the horizon “which constantly opens before us”

17 Unity > Conflict Conflict has to be faced It cannot be permitted to trap us Seek to face conflict, resolve it, and make “it a link in the chain of a new process” Go beyond to “build communion” Unity brought by the Holy Spirit who “can harmonize every diversity”

18 Reality > Ideas “Sadly even many with solid doctrinal and spiritual convictions are seeking power and human glory rather than the good of others. Don’t let this happen to you.”

19 The Whole > The Parts Open our worlds and broaden our horizons Yes be local, but also be global Seek the Gospel “The Church does not have solutions for every particular issue” Dialogue is essential
