NETWORK Reflects on ‘Gaudete et Exsultate’

In Pope Francis’s new apostolic exhortation, “Gaudete et Exsultate,” or “Rejoice and Be Glad”, he calls us all to holiness. Released on April 9, 2018, the 104 page document is the third exhortation to be issued since the start of his papacy. Throughout the five chapters, Pope Francis  reminds us that we all have a special role to play in the creation of God’s Kindom. To explore the exhortation, the NETWORK staff took a deep dive into the document, studying each chapter, explaining where they found wisdom, and discussing how the exhortation informs our advocacy work. Watch our videos below to learn more about the exhortation.
