Joy-filled Good News
Fr John Chalmers has given presentations on Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium (The Joy of the Gospel) to dioceses, groups and parishes. These reflections are available free of charge in audio and text. Permission is given for copies to be made for local use, eg parish, group, school. Below there are six audio files of Fr Chalmers giving each of these presentations. You may listen to these on the website or download them to your computer. This will enable you to listen to these files on a computer, iPod, iPhone, iPad, Kindle or Android device. Following the audio files (MP3) you will find the text of the six reflections (PDF files, 3-4 pages). You may print these for parish councils, staff, groups and individuals. The files can also be transferred to an iPhone or tablet and read by an app such as GoodReader. We will also be publishing small group materials in coming months.
