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

Are you called to the consecrated life?

Be holy by living out your commitment with joy.

Are you married?

Be holy by loving and caring for your husband or wife as Christ does for the church.

Do you work for a living?

Be holy by laboring with integrity and skill in the service of your brothers and sisters.

Are you a parent or grandparent?

Be holy by patiently teaching the little ones how to follow Jesus.

Are you in a position of authority?

Be holy by working for the common good and renounce personal gain.

Let the grace of your baptism bear fruit in a path of holiness. Let everything be open to God; turn to him in every situation. Do not be dismayed, for you can do this in the power of the Holy Spirit, and holiness, in the end, is the fruit of the Holy Spirit in your life.
