Earlier this year Pope Francis delivered to all Catholics an Apostolic Exhortation (Gaudete et Exsultate) on the call to Holiness in today’s world. His goal was to repropose the universal call to holiness in a practical way for our times. “Universal” means, as the Fathers of the Second Vatican Council declared, that everyone is called live a holy life. He begins by inviting us to consider the lives of the official saints of the church, but also of those holy men and women who live in our midst and who inspire us. I invite you at home to enter into a family discussion with these questions: Who is you favourite saint? And Why? What are the qualities and examples of holiness that you admire in people you know? How could these qualities become greater in your life?
God bless you all, Fr Denis
