MAY –OCTOBER ROSARY

JPII GIFT AND BOOK SHOP NEWS

Pope Francis has published a new exhortation entitled, “Gaudete et Exsultate” or translated means, “Rejoice and be Glad”. Don’t be fooled by the Church formality or Latin. Pope Francis writes in a very simple and easy to understand style for everyone—not just for theologians.

In this exhortation, the Pope reminds us that we are all called to holiness, to become saints in our time. And becoming a saint, the Pope explains, means to be ourselves, where we are called to be in the contemporary world. He encourages us to be kind, to follow the beatitudes and live our lives in love, to become “saints next door”. Pope Francis uses many current, down to earth examples of holiness such as caring for an ailing relative, visiting a neighbor and speaking truthfully and kindly to others.

The Gift and Book Shop carries this exhortation and other books by Pope Francis. We remain open before and after weekend Masses during the summer. May you and your families have a safe and enjoyable summer!
