Pope Francis - You Can't Proclaim Jesus With A Long Face ( Be Joyful )

We get some excerpts from the  Pope Francis daily homily via Vatican Radio today that I think is very important.

This happens to be the theme of my Bishop , Duca of Shreveport  , in his Year of Faith parish visits. He goes into why Catholics don't often feel joy and how to correct that.

How the early Christians loved each other and were joyful was a huge reasons for converts to the Christian Faith as we can find from various sources .

I often hear this topic taught on as to how we approach Mass. But more importantly it's noticed by our co - workers, friends, and neighbors. If we are joyful people then often ask you are you so happy. That gives and opening to witness.
