Fr. Terry - April 22, 2018

On April 9th, Pope Francis released Gaudete et Exsultate, an "apostolic exhortation," which is a type of document directed to the Christian faithful in his role as Pope, usually focused on encouraging us in some part of the Christian life.  Taken from the end of Christ's Beatitudes ("rejoice and be glad" Mt. 5:12), the letter is focused on the call to holiness in today's world.  Pope Francis says it clearly at the outset:  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.

If one were to stand in front of a large crowd and say the word, “posture,” you’d likely see a physical response from the crowd — spines straightening, feet being placed firmly on the ground. During Mass we assume different postures — standing, kneeling, sitting — and we are also invited to make a variety of gestures. These postures and gestures are not merely ceremonial. They have profound meaning and, when done with understanding, can enhance our participation in the Mass.
