God is joyful. And He wants us to be full of joy, too.   The past few years have been extremely challenging, but even in dark times, the light of joy can shine bright.   True joy, says Pope Francis, is not a fleeting sentiment or a short-term solution to suffering; it springs from a solid hope that nothing and no one can take away.   A Gift of Joy and Hope is an invitation to embrace authentic beauty and a reminder to be open to encountering God, even in the midst of challenges. In this inspiring collection, Pope Francis encourages readers to change attitudes that exclude others; to reveal the deep dissatisfaction we all hide; and to overcome life’s challenges with courage and faith. He also challenges readers to hope without pessimism or doubt, to hope even in the midst of anxiety, to recognize the beauty all around us, and to let God show us how to deal with your doubts and fears.   This book aims to encourage readers to look outside themselves and believe that hope is still possible and that joy always has the last word.

Author Bio: Pope Francis

Author Bio: Pope Francis

Pope Francis, born Jorge Mario Bergoglio in 1936, is the 266th pope of the Catholic Church, having been elected bishop of Rome and absolute sovereign of Vatican City. Throughout his life, both as an individual and as a religious leader, he has been noted for his humility, his concern for the poor, and his commitment to dialogue as a way to build bridges between people of all backgrounds, beliefs, and faiths. Born in Buenos Aires as the son of Italian parents, he was ordained a priest in 1969. Following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI in February 2013, the papal conclave elected Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who chose the papal name Francis in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi. Pope Francis is the first Jesuit pope, the first pope from the Americas, the first from the southern hemisphere, and the first non-European pope since Pope Gregory III, 1,272 years earlier.
