Pope’s Quotes: Go, make disciples

 |  The Francis Chronicles

My favorite quotes from Pope Francis:

To be the people of God, “first of all means that God doesn’t belong to any particular people, because he is the one who calls us … and this invitation is addressed to all, without distinction, because God’s mercy ‘wills everyone to be saved.’ Jesus doesn’t tell the apostles and us to form an exclusive group of elite members. Jesus says: ‘Go and make disciples of all nations.’”

—Pope Francis continuing a series of meditations on the church June 12
