Pope’s quotes: Resolving problems

 |  The Francis Chronicles

A quote from Pope Francis:

“By sharing, discussing and praying, all problems in the Church can be resolved, with the certainty that gossip, envy and jealousy never lead to concord, harmony and peace. There too it was the Holy Spirit who crowned this understanding and this enables us to understand that, when we let ourselves be guided by the Holy Spirit, it leads us to harmony, unity and respect for different gifts and talents.”

-- Regina Coeli, May 18, 2014
