' “Rejoice and be glad”, Jesus tells those persecuted or humiliated for this sake. What follows is not meant to be a treatise on holiness, containing definitions and distinctions. My modest goal is to repropose the call to holiness in a practical way for our own time, with all its risks, challenges and opportunities.' Given by Pope Francis in Rome, at Saint Peter's, on 19 March, the Solemnity of Saint Joseph.
