(ANSA) – VATICAN CITY, FEBRUARY 07 – The Pope, in an audience at the Pontifical Lombard Seminary in Rome, asks for a commitment to eliminate inequalities: “Be weavers of communion, zero inequalities, pastors attentive to the signs of suffering of people”. “I invite you to ask God to dream of the beauty of the Church, the Church is beautiful: to dream of the Italian Church of tomorrow more faithful to the spirit of the Gospel, freer, more fraternal and joyful in witnessing to Jesus”, “an Italian Church that cultivates a communion stronger than any distinction and is even more passionate for the poor, in whom Jesus is present “. So the invitation is not to remain “barricaded in the sacristy and do not cultivate small closed groups where we can pamper ourselves and rest assured”. And also a piece of advice: “Beware of careerism, in the end it is useless, it does not help”.
“Often, even here in Italy, ecclesial discourses are reduced to sterile internal dialectics between those who are innovators and those who are conservative, between those who prefer that politician and who that other, and the central point is forgotten: being Church to live and spread the Gospel. Let us not worry about small home gardens, there is a whole world thirsting for Christ “, concluded Pope Francis. (HANDLE).
