Pope’s quotes: ‘Impulse of grace’

 | 

A quote from Pope Francis:

“Therefore, we are all called to adore Christ in our hearts (1 Pet 3:15) in order to allow ourselves to be touched by the impulse of grace contained in the seed of the word, which must grow in us and be transformed into concrete service to our neighbor. We need not be afraid: God follows the work of his hands with passion and skill in every phase of life. He never abandons us! He has fulfillment of his plan for us at heart, and yet he wishes to achieve it with our consent and cooperation.

-- Message for the 51st World Day of Prayer for Vocations, May 11, 2014
