Welcome to the Prayer Resource on Evangelii Gaudium (EG) -Joy of the Gospel by Pope Francis! This Prayer Resource invites us to reflect on the wisdom of EG and explore ways to translate its message to revitalise our parishes and communities.
This Prayer Resource is developed for groups, but it can also be used for individual reflection. The ideal would be a group of up to 20 participants and run for 30-60 minutes (depending on the Prayer Module and the size of the group). The prayer is designed in a way that once the user/s have finished the Prayer Modules, they have effectively an idea of the insight of Evangelii Gaudium. It is designed to be simple, understandable, and easier to be translated into other languages. Users can start with any module or use different parts of any module to create new prayers. To start, click the GENERAL GUIDELINES.
Below are the links to the six Prayer Modules. Each one has Guidelines for Prayer Leaders and the Prayer Module itself. You need to open both. These are arranged to be printed as booklets (printing preferences: landscape and flip on short-edge).
