On April 9, 2018, the Apostolic Exhortation “Gaudete Et Exultate,” or Rejoice and Be Glad, was promulgated by Pope Francis. The Holy Father looks at the call to holiness in today’s world with wit, insight and encouraging counsel. Francis says: “Don’t be afraid of being holy.”
From how to avoid false forms of holiness, to finding inspiration in the lives of the saints, Pope Francis explores the heights and depths of practical Christian holiness. He invites all Christians to accept Jesus’ invitation to live out the fullness of the Beatitudes and to discern and generously respond to one’s personal mission. See how Pope Francis is guiding the Catholic Church’s call to holiness in the modern world and how you can be a part of it!
