Pope's quotes: Past must meet the present

 |  The Francis Chronicles

A quote from Pope Francis:

“There is a past and there is a present. There are the roots of faith: the memories of the Apostles and the Martyrs; and there is the ecclesial ‘today,’ the current path of this Church which presides over charity, the service of unity and universality. All this must not be taken for granted!

-- Audience with Gregorian Pontifical University, Pontifical Biblical Institute and Pontifical Oriental Institute April 10, 2014
