Apostolic Exhortation on Holiness

Read Pope Francis’ new apostolic exhortation on ‘the call to holiness in today’s world’.

Rejoice and be glad

The exhortation, entitled¬†Gaudete et exsultate (‘Rejoice and be glad’), was given in Rome on the Solemnity of St Joseph, 19th March 2018.

The title is taken from the Gospel of Matthew (5:12); it is an instruction given by Jesus to those who are humiliated for His sake. Pope Francis’ goal in writing this exhortation is to “repropose the call to holiness in a practical way for our own time, with all its risks, challenges and opportunities” (GE, 2).
