Happy To Be Holy? A Guide to Pope Francis’ Message ‘Gaudete et Exsultate’


Alan Hilliard

Holiness is the concern of all Christians, and is initimately connected to a life of Christian Joy. 

In Happy To Be Holy? Fr Alan Hilliard takes us on a journey through Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation. Chapter by chapter he explains the significance of Pope Francis’ remarks in an illuminating, and accessible way. Included are extracts from Guadete et Exsultate, personal introductions to each chapter, and sets of questions to encourage you on your own spiritual journey.
