“Gaudete et Exsultate” (“Rejoice and Be Glad”)!

As I’m sure you will know Pope Francis released a new Apostolic Exhortation a few days ago, on Monday 9th April. On the Call to Holiness in Today’s World.

“With this exhortation I would like to insist primarily on the call to holiness that the Lord addresses to each of us, the call that he also addresses, personally, to you,” he wrote near the beginning. “We are all called to be holy by living our lives with love and by bearing witness in everything we do, wherever we find ourselves,” he said.

The title “Gaudete et Exsultate” (“Rejoice and Be Glad”) is from  the Beatitudes, Matthew 5.

Here is the Apostolic Exhortation in English.
