Pope Francis’ third Apostolic Exhortation “The Call to Holiness in the Contemporary World” will be published on Monday, April 9, 2018.  “Gaudete et Exsultate” is the Latin title which translated into English as “Rejoice and Be Glad.”  The text is from Matthew’s Gospel (5:12) at the end of the Beatitudes.

Archbishop Angelo De Donatis will present the latest exhortation at a press conference in the Vatican on Monday.  Two laypersons will assist the Archbishop in the presentation:  Journalist Gianni Valente and Paola Bignardi, former President of the Catholic Action movement in Italy.
