Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Francis now available in Maltese
|Email item||Print item||
The Secretariat of Laity of the Church in collaboration with the Gozo Diocese is now able to offer a Maltese version of the first Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium (The Joy of the Gospel).
The document was translated from the original Italian text during months of work by Francesco Pio Attard, assisted by Joe Farrugia and Vivienne Attard.
The Apostolic Exhortation – Evangelii Gaudium, contained in five chapters, is considered one of the most important documents written by a Pope in recent years, and which Pope Francis offers what might be called the programme of his pontificate. That is why, when it was released last November, the document sparked keen interest, not only from within the Church, but also in the secular world.
With his unique style Pope Francis says, “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.”
This document is available from the website of the Secretariat of Laity www.laikos.org. Also available are Maltese translations of other documents such as the Magisterium of the Church, among others.
In the coming weeks , The Joy of Gospel will also be available as a book printed by the Maltese Dominican Publications.
