The Joy of the Gospel: The Revolution of Tenderness

The Pope's new document--with Francis as the sole author--was released today. I read it all of it this morning. It is lengthy but worth it. Go to this Vatican link.

Here are three quotes that stood out in the eyes of this reader. Read the document yourself and share your own favorite lines. 

The Vatican link above has hyperlinks to different sections of the document--so you can jump around and read first those parts that interest you the most.

1. "The Son of God, by becoming flesh, summoned us to the revolution of tenderness" (The Joy of the Gospel, 88);

2. "Our infinite sadness can only be cured by an infinite love" (265);


3. "We achieve fulfilment when we break down walls and our heart is filled with faces and names!" (274).
