POPE FRANCIS “I WANT THE CHURCH TO GO INTO THE STREETS…”

by

I like this piece of news on the Pope’s visit to Rio.  I love the way he encourages us to go out and live the Gospel…

“On Friday Pope Francis added an extra visit to the official programme; he went to Rio Cathedral to greet an exuberant crowd of young Argentinians.  Speaking colloquially, he said: “I want the Church to go out into the streets, I want us to defend ourselves against all worldliness, opposition to progress, from that which is comfortable, from that which is clericalism, from all that which means being closed up in ourselves. Parishes, schools, institutions are made in order to come out … if they do not do this, they become a non-governmental organisation, and the Church must not be an NGO”. (Independent Catholic News)

Let’s go…!!!
