Gaudete et Exsultate: Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Francis – Chapter 1: The Call to Holiness

I would like to insist primarily on the call to holiness that the Lord addresses to each of us, the call that he also addresses personally to you, “Be holy for I am holy.”

The Second Vatican Council stated this clearly: “Strengthened by so many and such great means of salvation, all the faithful, whatever their condition or state, are called by the Lord – each in his or her own way – to that perfect holiness by which the Father is perfect”

…The important thing is that each person discern his or her own path, that they bring out the very best of themselves, the most personal gifts that God has placed in their hearts rather than hopelessly trying to imitate something not meant for them … For God’s life is communicated “to some in one way and to others in another.”
