“We are frequently tempted to think that holiness is only for those who can withdraw from ordinary affairs to spend much time in prayer. That is not the case.”
In this newest papal exhortation, released on April 9, 2018, and entitled Gaudete et Exsultate (Rejoice and Be Glad), Pope Francis looks at the call to holiness in today’s world, which is something to which we all can aspire. No matter who we are, young or old and no matter what our vocation, it is in the very act of living—with humility, kindness, and mercy—that we can become holy. 
Holiness is in everyday life, with its risks, challenges, and opportunities, but we do not have to settle for a mediocre existence. Rather, the pope challenges us to find a practical holiness, a “next door” holiness.
