Rejoice and Be Glad - Study Edition
In this newest papal exhortation, released on April 9, 2018, and entitled Gaudete et Exsultate (Rejoice and Be Glad), Pope Francis looks at the call to holiness in today’s world, which is something to which we all can aspire. No matter who we are, young or old and no matter what our vocation, it is in the very act of living—with humility, kindness, and mercy—that we can become holy.
Holiness is in everyday life, with its risks, challenges, and opportunities, but we do not have to settle for a mediocre existence. Rather, the pope challenges us to find a practical holiness, a “next door” holiness.
The pope’s overarching message here, and the theme of his papacy, is this: We must cultivate seeing and acting with mercy.

Believe in Love: Inspiring Words from Pope Francis
Pope Francis - Editor Alicia von Stamwitz
When Jorge Bergoglio was a young Jesuit, he wrote a statement of his personal beliefs. It began, “I want to believe in God the Father who loves me like a child, and in Jesus, the Lord who infused my life with His Spirit, to make me smile and so carry me to the eternal Kingdom of life.”
The elements of this credo inspired the selection and arrangement of the reflections gathered here.
