Pope’s quotes: Fragile faith

 |  The Francis Chronicles

A quote from Pope Francis:

“The worst enemy of a fragile faith — curious, isn’t it? — is fear. Do not be afraid! We are frail and we know it, but he is stronger! If you walk with him there is no problem! A child is very frail — I have seen many children today — but if they’re with their father, with their mother, they are safe. With the Lord we are safe. Faith grows with the Lord, from the very hand of the Lord; this helps us grow and makes us strong.”

-- Address at Vigil of Pentecost with the Ecclesial Movements, St. Peter’s Square, May 18, 2013
