Pope’s quotes: Listen to all

 |  The Francis Chronicles

A quote from Pope Francis:

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, do not spare any effort in opening new ways to the Gospel, to reach the hearts of all people so that they may discover what already resides therein: Christ as a friend and brother. … It will not be difficult to find these paths of we follow the footsteps of the Lord, who ‘came not be served but to serve,’ who knew how to respect God’s time with humility, to patiently await the process of maturation of each person, without fear of taking the first step towards the encounter. He teaches us to listen to all, heart to heart, with tenderness and mercy, and to seek what truly unites and serves in mutual edification.”

-- Audience with Spanish Episcopal Conference, March 3, 2014
