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


How can we know what it is to be holy? What difference can holiness make in our lives? Far from being a matter for only the ‘holy Joes’ among us, 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’ latest 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. 

Pope Francis wants to help tune us in to God, and in Happy To Be Holy? Fr Alan Hilliard wants to help us tune in to Pope Francis! Rejoice and be glad!
