Default Pope Francis: Joy of the Gospel

Pope Francis will issue an apostolic exhortation his first substantial teaching document on the last day of the year of faith (Sun. Nov. 24 2013). I believe that the great apostasy begins during the reign of Pope Francis. This document could be one of several factors that triggers the start of the apostasy.

The document is entitled: The Joy of the Gospel

He might teach that those who explicitly reject the Gospel as taught by the Church can still be saved if that objective mortal sin is not also an actual mortal sin, due to invincible ignorance. He might teach that non-Christians and non-believers can be saved without converting by implicitly accepting Christ.

The Apostolic Exhortation can be downloaded from the vatican.va site. As soon as you select your language a popup appears asking if you want to download it. Otherwise (if that does not appear), you can choose 'Apostolic Exhortations' on the page and it is also visible.

The PDF I have is 224 pages in length, but it is larger font.
