A few weeks ago Pope Francis released an apostolic exhortation on the call to holiness called Gaudete et Exsultate (Rejoice and Be Glad.) It’s an excellent letter that is a terrific reminder of what it means to be holy and the call that Jesus gives each one of us. You can read the exhortation here.
Jesus calls you to be a saint. That call sounds pretty crazy, but he calls each of us to be holy. Over the next several weeks we are going to be releasing videos to walk through this exhortation from Pope Francis and examine what this crazy sounding call means for each of us.
Before I share the video links and the link to this week’s podcast, I wanted to ask you to please share a comment on the video, blog, or podcast and let me know what you think. I value your feedback and would love to know what God is teaching you!
Watch the video now:
“What are you doing? Are you wasting your life?” As I was getting ready to finish college, I hit a crisis point in my life where I had to decide whether I needed to make more money in life or I should follow the call I thought God had given me to do ministry.
In this week’s Catholic Heroes Podcast I share my story and how I ended up in full-time ministry. My hope is that this episode encourages and inspires you to see God in whatever work he calls you to. The featured saint in this episode is St. Matthias.
