Benedictine Online Book Club: Your Call to Holiness, Your Way


By Sister Mary Core, OSB

Pope Francis published his apostolic exhortaion Gaudete et Exsultate in 2018. Click here to download it.

It’s a personal call to holiness, filled with the kind of inspiration that can get people to move. In fact, my book group, Wisdom Seekers, decided to move into a study of it!

And I decided to share it online, with you. The entire document is easy to access and read. I recommend you read it slowly, though, because it brims with spiritual insight and gentle encouragement. It’s worth savoring. 

Over the next few weeks, we will discuss each chapter and think about ways we can take steps to grow in our own holiness. 

Begin by reading the introduction and Chapter 1.

Consider how a call to holiness fits in with all that is going on in the country right now, politically, environmentally, internationally.

Consider how you are called to holiness.

What does it mean to you?

Part 1: Living an Ordinary Life Extraordinarily Well

Part 2: The Subtle Enemies of Holiness

    Hi Cate, The Wisdom Seekers meet at a Quad-City parish every Wednesday. Email me at seflans1@gmail.com for more information. If you're not local, then it will be a "virtual" book club for you. Just follow along as we add new posts here every week!
