At the Wednesday audience, he offered a five-word definition of sanctity. An exhortation on the theme is due Monday.
The document will cover the theme of holiness in the modern world.
Just last Wednesday at the general audience, Pope Francis offered a five-word definition of holiness.
He was speaking of being a Eucharistic man or woman, and he said:
“It means letting Christ act in our deeds: may His thoughts be our thoughts, His sentiments ours, His choices our choices. And this is holiness: to do as Christ did is Christian holiness.”
This will be the fifth full-length document from Pope Francis, following the encyclicals “Lumen fidei” (6-29-2013) and “Laudato si'” (5-24-2015); and the apostolic exhortations “Evangelii gaudium» (11-24-2013) and “Amoris laetitia” (3-19-2016).
