Our Church is a community of yes, Pope francis, during Thursday morning mass

The church is a community of the Yes, because it is born of the love of Christ. Pope Francis in his homily during the Thursday morning mass that he concelebrated with Cardinal Albert Malcolm Ranjith Patabendige, the Archbishop of Colombo Sri Lanka, and staff from the Vatican Museums. When we don't allow the Holy Spirit to work, divisions in the Church grow, continued the holy father, who focused his message on the first reading from the Acts of the Apostles, which recounts the first steps of the Church which, after Pentecost, went out to the "outskirts of faith" to proclaim the Gospel. Pope Francis noted that the Holy Spirit did two things: "first it pushed" and created "problems" and then "fostered harmony within the Church." Emmer Mccarthy reports. RealAudioMP3
