I decided to take some time to revisit Pope Francis's "joy manifesto" -- the Apostolic Exhortation, The Joy of the Gospel: Evangelii Gaudium (November 24, 2013). I invite you to join me in reflecting on this document and see what it might say to us this day. I am going to take one idea at a time, as it strikes me while I am reading. Today's idea? Bluntness!
