He also talked about service, adding that their goal should not be career oriented, but rather one of service. The Pope then stressed the importance of the Church, saying that one cannot separate Jesus from the Church.

POPE FRANCIS
"Rejoice, because it's beautiful to follow Jesus. It's beautiful to reflect the image of the Mother of God and of our Holy Mother, the  Hierarchical Church.”

The theme of this conference which brought all these superiors to Rome, is the service of authority, according to the Gospel.
