A place for St. Isidore and St. Elizabeth of Hungary parishioners to ask questions or make comments on Pope Francs' Joy of the Gospel.

Pope Francis’s The Joy of the Gospel is a unique and remarkable document. Presented as an apostolic exhortation, it has been called a manifesto of his papacy. Its down-to-earth, colloquial style sets it apart from other papal documents. Pope Francis writes in a way that can leave readers feeling that he is speaking directly to them, much as any good pastor would speak to his people.
