St. Paul Catholic Men's Fellowship Group
The Men's Group recently finished a published interview with Pope Francis by the Jesuit magazine,
America, The National Catholic Review. We concluded with highlights covering his ideas on
Church reorganization, ecumenism, women in the life of the Church, finding God in all things,
discernment of God ("God is always a surprise.") and why we must continue to be optimistic and
full of hope. He cautioned about making faith a "laboratory" and that God is found only in history
and not in abstract truths. He encourages Catholics to keep things in context and "be audacious!"
The Church has to respond to the rapid changes going on in today's society. We need to understand
the "transmission of the Gospel" through history and therefore, its timeless meaning. His interview
concludes with how the Pope, prays.
Our next meeting is Wednesday, June 4th at 7:30 PM in the Lower Church. We begin with
Chapter One (The Church's Missionary Transformation) and Chapter Two (Amid the Crisis of
Communal Commitment) from Pope Francis' Apostolic Exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium (The Joy
of the Gospel) published last November. We end the season with a final meeting on Wednesday, June 18th.
All men of the parish are cordially invited to attend.
