This eBooklet covers the themes Pope Francis emphasizes so strongly in The Joy of the Gospel, where he calls on all of us to be the missionary disciples the world needs so urgently today. These themes are:


  • God's boundless love and mercy
  • Our need to live in God's love and mercy
  • Our need to go out into our world as missionary disciples
  • Accompanying others on their journey through life and sharing God's love and mercy with them.


What exactly is missionary discipleship and what does it have to do with you and me?


These are the questions Matt Halbach explores in this simple, inspiring booklet. Starting with stories from his own faith journey, he shows us how each of us has what we need to answer the call to missionary discipleship and in the process to grow more deeply in God's boundless love and mercy ourselves.
