Gaudete et Exsultate

As we reminded you last week, the new Apostolic Exhortation, Gaudete et Exsultate (Rejoice and Be Glad:  On the Call to Holiness in Today's World) was released today at noon (Rome time).  It is available here.  Pope Francis explains that his goal in Gaudete et Exsultate is to "repropose the call to holiness in a practical way for our own time, with all its risks, challenges and opportunities.  For the Lord has chosen each one of us 'to be holy and blameless before him in love'" (Eph 1:4) (n. 2).

If you are short on time to read the exhortation, America Magazine has provided "Top Five Takeaways from Pope Francis' Gaudete et Exsultate" (available here).  The "takeaways" are a good introduction, but they are not a substitute for reading the words of Pope Francis.
