“The fire of love, lit by Christ in the world through the Holy Spirit, is an unlimited fire, it’s a universal fire,” said Pope Francis to faithful and pilgrims gathered at the St. Peter square at the Vatican during his usual Sunday afternoon Angelus Pray.
The pontiff added that this has been seen since the early days of Christianity, the testimony of the Gospel has spread like a beneficial fire, overcoming any division between individuals, categories peoples and nations. The testimony of the Gospel burns all forms of particularism and keeps charity open to all, with a preference for the poorest and the excluded.
Adherence to the fire of love that Jesus has brought to earth envelops our entire and requires adoration to God and also a willingness to serve others said, Pope Francis. He invited everyone present to discover the beauty of prayer of worship and to exercise it often.
The Holy Father was quick to express his admiration of so many communities and groups of young people who during the summer dedicate their service to the sick, the poor and people with disabilities.
He applied to Christians to be disciples of Christ who know how to respond with new initiatives of charity and also with worship to God and service to others. He explained that together with worshipping God and serve others the Gospel really manifests itself as the fire that saves, that changes the world from a change of each person’s heart.
“It is good to say that we are Christians but above all we must be Christians in concrete situations, testifying the gospel that is essentially love for God and for brothers and sisters.” Said, Pope Francis
