What Pope Francis Asks Of Priests (Video)

Aleteia - published on 01/19/15

From his homily during Mass with bishops, priests, and religious in Manila

“I ask you to share the joy 
and enthusiasm of your love for Christ 
and the Church with everyone, 
but especially with your peers. 
Be present to young people 
who may be confused and despondent, 
yet continue to see the Church 
as their friend on the journey 
and a source of hope….
Proclaim the beauty and truth of the Christian message 
to a society which is tempted by confusing presentations 
of sexuality, marriage and the family.”

– Homily during Holy Mass with bishops, priests, and religious at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Manila.
