“REJOICE  AND  BE  GLAD”

–a Call to Holiness in Today’s World

“As the subtitle explicitly states, its theme is “the call to holiness in today’s world.” The pontiff launches a plain, essential message, indicating that what counts, what is the essence of Christian life — to use the terminology of St. Ignatius of Loyola — is to “seek and find God in all things,” following the instruction of his invitation to Jesuits: curet primo Deum. This is the heart of every reform, both personal and ecclesial: put God at the center.”   —Catholic Digest
