In Gaudete Et Exsultate, Pope Francis presents the universal call to a holy life with a new and fresh approach. This is his third apostolic exhortation, and, as he describes it:
"My modest goal is to re-propose the call to holiness in a practical way for our own time, with all its risks, challenges and opportunities."
Pope Francis calls us to holiness, speaking of the saints "next door" and the mission for each of us in Christ. He describes the two subtle enemies of holiness: contemporary Gnosticism and Pelangianism. He speaks on what it means to be in the light of the Master and provides a list of signs of holiness in today's world. Thankfully, that list includes joy and a sense of humor. Finally, he writes on spiritual combat, vigilance and discernment.
The Gaudete Et Exsutate offers spiritual nourishment in Pope Francis' gentle and loving voice.
