GAUDETE et EXSULTATE

Rejoice and be Glad

IN THE LIGHT OF THE MASTER

Jesus explained with great simplicity what it means to be holy when he gave us the Beatitudes. 
The Beatitudes are like a Christian identity card.

In the Beatitudes, we find a Portrait of the Master, which we are called to reflect in our daily lives.

The word “Happy” or “Blessed”  becomes a synonym for “Holy”. It expresses the fact that those faithful to God and his word, by their self-giving, gain true happiness.

The great criterion - Holiness is not about swooning in mystic rupture.

In the call to recognise Christ in the poor and the suffering, we see revealed the very heart of Christ, his deepest feelings and choices, which every saint seeks to imitate.
