Gaudete et Exsultate:
The Most Important Passages

In its English translation, the new infernal exhortation Gaudete et Exsultate counts just over 22,000 words. We have read the text in its entirety so you don’t have to. You’re welcome.

Whether “Pope” Francis has read the text yet or not, we are not sure — Vaticanist Sandro Magister suspects that the document was written mainly by Bergoglio’s bosom buddy “Fr.” Antonio Spadaro, the man of “ecumenism of hate” fame.

In any case, we have compiled what we believe to be the most important quotes from Gaudete et Exsultate in the bulleted list below, as a companion to our Gaudete info page here

Antonio Spadaro and the “Ecumenism of Hate”

On July 13, 2017, the Rome-based Jesuit magazine La Civiltà Cattolica published an article entitled “Evangelical Fundamentalism and Catholic Integralism in the USA: A Surprising Ecumenism.” The authors of the piece are “Fr.” Antonio Spadaro, S.J., who is the periodical’s editor-in-chief, and the Protestant (!) Marcelo Figueroa, who, thanks to “Pope” Francis, is the editor-in-chief of the Argentine edition of the official Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano.

The article has gained much more attention than it actually deserves. It is a piece filled with half-truths and second-rate polemics, all wrapped in academic-sounding language to give it a veneer of respectability.
