    I present to you my journal, where I scribbled down the points that mostly closely resounded with me: I had to resist writing down every last detail. My modest goal is to repropose the call to holiness in a practical way for our own time, with all its risks, challenges, and o...

    Pope Francis continues to bring forth practical and very spiritual direction on both what the Jesus' message is for today in a way that is direct, practical and written for all. His message is very important for many questions that are raise by many of the economic, political, social a...

    Pope Francis offers a strong argument to permeate our lives with love and to strive for holiness. Holiness is not just the domain of saints, but the goal of every single person. This is a very down to earth letter addressed to all people, not just bishops and priests. ...

    A truly thought-provoking and humbling lesson on how to live a good life by Pope Francis. This short exhortation was right up my alley. The Pope basically gives his advice on how to life a'holy life, which sounds boring and stuffy, but it's not at all. By using the Beatitudes as a guid...

    Pretty good. Nothing new, but a few things worth pondering about. Please, do not rely on external commentary prior to reading this: when he talks about holiness outside the Church, he limits himself to cases of martyrdom which presuppose a Christian background, becausse martyrdom is dy...

    "Jesus clears a way to seeing two faces, that of the Father and that of our brother.... He gives us two faces, or better yet, one alone: the face of God reflected in so many other faces. For in every one of our brothers and sisters, especially the least, the most vulnerable, the defenc...

    Reflexão muito interessante e necessária sobre a santidade. Vivemos num tempo que se alheia do sobrenatural e que confia cegamente no empírico e nas teorizações. Urge ouvir este apelo do Papa Francisco de que todos podemos ser Santos. O "guia" sobre como alcançar a santidade a pa...

    Vote: 4,25 Class: P-A1 La santità della porta accanto. La santità di chi prega senza interruzione e si dedica, sempre senza interruzione, al prossimo. La santità di chi si mette in ascolto della voce di Dio minuto dopo minuto. La santità non appariscente di chi si lascia tra...

    Pope Francis has been pope for five years now, and given how old he was when he was elected, it is an impressive feat in and of itself. In that time, he has preached mercy and implored us to tend to the neglected and poor of the world. Unlike John Paul II and Benedict XVI before him, P...

    El líder religioso de uno de los colectivos que tienen como libro sagrado una de las versiones de la biblia, ese libro machista, intolerante y defensor de la esclavitud, el genocidio, el lapidamiento ritual, etc., defendiendo el modelo público de religión en un alarde de hipocresía...

    Rejoice and be glad! The point of this exhortation is to reiterate the universal call to holiness. Francis states, ?certainly the most decisive turning points in world history are substantially co-determined by souls whom no history book ever mentions.? YES! In a world (and a churc...

    Maravilhosa reflexão sobre os desafios que se colocam a religiosos e leigos nos dias de hoje no seu percurso para alcançar a santidade. Inspirador à oração, à reflexão e desafiante quanto ao propósito. ...

    This is well written document by Pope Francis. This document may not be highly regarded by some as a complete manual of how to be holy. But it served the purpose for common faithful laity as a stepping stone to learn about what, how and why we are all called to be holy. It is may not b...

    Holiness. "We cannot forget that the ultimate criterion on which our lives will be judged is what we have done for others." "Mercy is the key to heaven." "In everything do to others as you would have them do to you." "The measure you give will be the measure you get back - the yardstic...

    I read it in Polish but checked a few places in English and Italian as they were difficult to understand. In general its not bad but I would not called it a gripping read. I didn't like the fact it uses complicated words without real need for them. I also had problems with following ...

    Hace tiempo en una celebración pregunté ¿quien quiere ir al "cielo"? y todos levantaron la mano y luego pregunté ¿quién esta listo para ser santo? todos bajaron la mano. Al parecer hemos hecho de la santidad un club de privilegiados que parece que nunca se equivocaron en la vida....

    La Exhortación Apostólica es una invitación a la santidad en la época actual. El Papa orienta a los lectores en los medios eficaces para conseguirlo, a través de una vida entregada con el apoyo de la gracia divina. Hace ver los riesgos en los que se puede encontrar el cristiano en...

    Another beautiful document by Pope Francis. I found it enlightening and inspiring, as he always is. I especially loved this closing paragraph: "I would like these reflections to be crowned by Mary, because she lived the Beatitudes of Jesus as none other. She is that woman who rejoi...

    la santità per tutti... ma non è poi tanto facile essere santi. Citazioni evangeliche e misura della santità attraverso le Beatitudini. Interessanti anche le citazioni di san Tommaso d'Aquino e ovviamente i riferimenti a sant'Ignazio. Una santità pratica, più che teorica.. ...

    ¿Qué es la santidad? Podemos decir, siguiendo a las enseñanzas del Opus Dei que ser santos significa parecerse a Jesucristo en pensamientos, sentimientos, palabras y acciones; así, podemos resumir lo anterior en que la santidad es el estado de aquello que es santo. Pero, ¿quién p...

    Considero a Exortação Apostólica escrita por Papa Francisco Gaudete et Exsultate o ponto mais alto que o Papa chegou em seus escritos até agora. Uma Exortação simples, com escritos que vão direto ao coração. O chamado a Santidade é simples e universal. Três pontos me cham...

    La pasión, la sencillez y la claridad de Francisco para recordarnos que estamos llamados a la santidad. "«Cada uno por su camino», dice el Concilio. Entonces, no se trata de desalentarse cuando uno contempla modelos de santidad que le parecen inalcanzables. Hay testimonios que so...

    This is a short letter from the Pope to the Church. I would say anyone can gain something from reading this letter as long as they approach it with an open mind. Pope Francis is doing what past Popes have often done in this letter. He corrects us and tries to bring us to holiness. He w...

    We are saved by grace... Pope Francis is a real shepherd because he knows how to tend his sheep. He knows the best pasture that is the Word of God. Pope Francis from the beginning of his papacy looks towards us and he needs nothing from us except holiness. He always urges us to be hol...

    I enjoyed this a lot. I'm going to have to read through it again and spend some more time reflecting on it. There's a whole lot to take in here. I didn't really get where he was going on gnosticism and pelegianism; I definitely see the influences in our culture but I think it could hav...

    This book's message is the universal call to holiness and how to pursue it. It's not just for saints - it can happen to everyone in small ways of our everyday life, and each path is made with our own personality and strengths. There is two particular things that rise up from the tex...
