Rejoice and Be Glad

14 April 2018 | General Interest

'Rejoice and Be Glad!' is what Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount. It's also the title of Pope Francis' new apostolic exhortation on holiness in everyday life.

Fr James Martin SJ has identified the top 5 takeaways from this doc:

1. Holiness means being yourself

2. Everyday life can lead to holiness

3. Avoid false forms of holiness that can lead us astray

4. Be kind

5. The Beatitudes are a roadmap for holiness

The document is available online at http://w2.vatican.va/content/vatican/en.html or you will soon be able to purchase a copy from the Parish Piety Shop.

Vatican News has published a great short video to launch 'Rejoice and Be Glad On the Call to Holiness in Today's World'. View it here: https://www.vaticannews.va/en/pope/news/2018-04/pope-s-exhortation-gaudete-et-exsultate-.html
