Pope Francis’s Encyclicals and Exhortations:

Fratelli Tutt Encyclical letter on Fraternity and Social Friendship

Post Synod Exhortation Christ is Alive


TO YOUNG PEOPLE AND TO THE ENTIRE PEOPLE OF GOD   Christ is alive! He is our hope, and in a wonderful way he brings youth to our world, and everything he touches becomes young, new, full of life. The very first words, then, that I would like to say to every young Christian are these: Christ is alive and he wants you to be alive!…………

Rejoyce and Be Glad! Gaudete-et-exsultateRejoyce and Be Glad! Gaudete et exsultate addresses the theme of holiness. It is a theme that has run through Pope Francis’ entire pontificate, and which he often mentions to encourage the faithful to practice Christian perfection “in the little things of everyday life.” The Church is full of “everyday saints,” said Pope Francis during the general audience of May 14, 2014. These “hidden saints among us” fulfill their duty in their “ordinary daily routine.” They are “fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, citizens. We have many of them! Let us thank the Lord for these Christians who live in hidden holiness.”

On Care for Our Common Home Laudato Si

The Light of Faith Lumen fidei

Note: Lumen fidei and Laudato si are encylicals. The others are properly listed as ‘Apostolic Exhortations. They tend to be more ‘action focused’ rather than ‘teaching focused’
