Evangelism According to Pope Francis


“I prefer a Church which is bruised, hurting and dirty because it has been out on the streets, rather than a Church which is unhealthy from being confined and from clinging to its own security.” Evangelii Gaudium, 49.

In the fourth episode of Evenings with Pope Francis, Fr Dean Mathieson OFM Cap explains Pope Francis’ approach to evangelisation: that it is one of witness, encounter, and co-operation to the Holy Spirit.


Evenings with Pope Francis was an initiative of Catholic Youth Services, Sydney, held at The Mill Hotel in Milperra.
