We have posted the third article in our 2014 series "Reflections", titledTowards Reform for Mission. The article posits that Pope Francis’s initiatives are tentative steps towards reform in order that the Church may be more credible to undertake its mission. The Pope's elected lifestyle makes him an authentic witness and evangelist. His exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium, extends magisterial teaching on mission and evangelisation, in a line from Vatican II’s Ad Gentes, giving hope for a revitalised Church much as the Easter mystery gives hope for new transformed life.
