Understanding Gaudate et Exsultate
Show Notes
On this Trinity Sunday, Fr Eamon Conway joins with John and Shane to take us through the highlights of the newest papal document from Pope Francis called Gaudete et Exsultate ("Rejoice and be glad"). Gaudete et Exsultate is a new apostolic exhortation on “the call to holiness in the contemporary world.” “Gaudete et Exsultate” is the Latin title of the text, which translated into English means “Rejoice and Be Glad.” The words are taken from the Gospel of Matthew (5:12) at the end of the discourse on the Beatitudes. Fr Eamon Conway takes us through this very readable document of five chapters which explore the call to holiness, the enemies of holiness, what it is to be holy – through living out the beatitudes, the signs of holiness in today’s world and spiritual combat. We have our run through various liturgical odds & ends as well as a brief reflection on this weeks Sunday gospel.
