Edizioni San Paolo is pleased to present a special edition of the Apostolic Exhortation with an introduction by Maurizio Gronchi and indexes by Giuliano Vigini.

In the appendix, the letter Placuit Deo released by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on Certain Aspects of Christian Salvation.

The new apostolic exhortation “Gaudete et exsultate” focuses on holiness and vocation: the call to holiness for all the baptized. It is a theme contained in chapter V of the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church “Lumen Gentium”: Pope Francis has already been inspired by this text for his catechesis and his magisterium on the "holy and faithful people of God", key theme in his speeches. “Holiness,” explains Pope Francis "is something bigger, more profound that God gives us. It is precisely living with love and with your own Christian witness in the everyday occupations that we are called to become saints."

Maurizio Gronchi, presbyter of the diocese of Pisa, is ordinary professor of Christology at the Pontifical Urban University in Rome, consultor of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and of the General Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops. He participated as an expert at the two Synodal Assemblies on the family (2014 and 2015).
