The Gospel of Joy in America

The Gospel of Joy in America


Catholicism in the United States during the twenty-first century will be defined by the passion and the commitment of all baptized women and men who accept the invitation to intentionally give witness of their faith in Jesus Christ. For centuries, countless Catholics from many parts of the world built communities and kept the faith alive nearly in every corner of the country. Today is the turn of a new diverse and hopeful generation of Catholics. The context in which they give witness of their faith is different from that of two centuries ago, yet the imperative to share the joy of the Gospel to the next generations while transforming the society in which they live is the same. This is a true Catholic moment. This short book is the inspirational keynote delivered by Catholic theologian Dr. Hosffman Ospino on Sunday, July 2, 2017 before thousands of Catholic leaders participating in the Convocation of Catholic Leaders: The Joy of the Gospel in America, organized by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to celebrate its one hundredth anniversary. The text is an excellent resource for dialogue, reflection, and planning among pastoral leaders and faith communities nationwide
