In his apostolic exhortation Gaudete et Exsultate, Pope Francis calls on Christians to fully embrace their baptismal call to live the Gospel. Franciscan friar and author Daniel P. Horan, a Boston College alumnus, has written a book to guide readers through Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation. Reading, Praying, Living Pope Francis’s Rejoice and Be Glad (Liturgical Press, 2019) offers helpful commentary, additional context, and expert insight. The publisher calls Fr. Horan’s book “the most extensive and helpful commentary on Gaudete et Exsultate available anywhere.” Fr. Horan teaches at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago and is the author of several books, including God is Not Fair and Other Reasons for Gratitude and The Franciscan Heart of Thomas Merton: A New Look at the Spiritual Influence of His Life, Thought, and Writing.
