Archbishop Paul S. Coakley
In Pope Francis’s recent and very approachable Apostolic Exhortation, “Gaudete et Exsultate” (Rejoice and Be Glad), the Holy Father reflects on the call to holiness in today’s world. But, it’s probably not what you think. It’s not a theoretical treatise. It’s a pastor’s reflection born out of lived experience. “My modest goal,” he writes, “is to repropose the call to holiness in a practical way for our own time.” It is very practical!
