Day of prayer for vocation to be saints

Gaudete et exultate (Rejoice and be glad), the apostolic exhortation on holiness by Pope Francis, although signed on March 19, on the feast of St. Joseph, was released for the public three weeks later, well in time for the World Day of Prayer for Vocations, celebrated on April 22.

Holiness is being loving not boring pope says

VATICAN (CNS): “With this exhortation I would like to insist primarily on the call to holiness that the Lord addresses to each of us, the call that he also addresses, personally, to you,” Pope Francis writes near the beginning of his new apostolic exhortation, Gaudete et Exsultate (Rejoice and Be Glad).
 
“Do not be afraid of holiness. It will take away none of your energy, vitality or joy,” he writes in the document, which was signed on March 19, the feast of St. Joseph, and released by the Vatican on April 9.
