Pope Francis’ advice to the married: Ask God for help

PAPIEŻ FRANCISZEK, KOLUMBIA

In all vocations, "No one has their perseverance guaranteed," he said.

Pope Francis welcomed a group of consecrated people, newlyweds, and couples celebrating their silver or gold anniversary, at the Apostolic Nunciature in Bogota, Colombia, on September 9, 2017. Each of you, he told them off-script, has been called by Christ to a vocation. However, “no one has their perseverance guaranteed.” We must “ask for it” from the Lord. Throughout our lives, our vocation is lived “with joy, sorrow, sin, and grace,” the Pope continued. It is always “the same vocation” that we are called to live, “but in different ways.”
