Christians of the Xi Liu Lin parish.

The Xi Liu Lin parish of the Diocese of Tai Yuan in mainland China has proposed living the Gospel as its objectives for 2014, the Year of the Gospel.

Responding to Pope Francis’ apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium as an ideal continuation of the Year of Faith, the parish has invited all the faithful to live 2014 intensely by reading, studying, transcribing, memorizing, transmitting and living the Gospel because "the Gospel of Christ is the source of our life".

The parish recommended to the faithful "To read the Gospel for a complete understanding of Jesus and faith, to believe and to imitate him; to study the Gospel in the family and in the parish to learn to be His disciples; to transcribe the Gospel in order to engrave it in the minds and hearts. Memorizing the Gospel helps the faithful to enter into Jesus’ life.  To live the Gospel, the faithful are asked to put the Gospel at the centre of their life."
