JPII GIFT AND BOOK
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.
