Gaudete et Exsultate: We are called to be holy!!!

Pope Francis has recently published a new Apostolic Exhortation called Gaudete et Exsultate (Rejoice and be glad), on the call to holiness in today's world. 

He writes of what it means to be holy in the modern world, with many specific examples: viewing a person sleeping on the street not as an obstacle or a political problem but as a human being; refraining from gossip in the grocery store and impatience with our children; reading the Bible even in a time of constant online distractions; avoiding being “caught up in networks of verbal violence through the internet.”

We encourage everyone to read this new document from our Holy Father and take up his call to be holy where you are: in your family, in your workplace, in school, with your friends because our world desperately needs holy Christians, people who can reveal the face of God to everyone else.
