Pope to religious: You are spiritual mothers

2013-05-08

POPE FRANCIS
"I want to thank my dear brother, Cardinal Joao Braz de Aviz for his welcoming words. I'm also quite happy to see the Secretary of the Congregation. His name is Pepe.”

During his speech, the Pope talked about obedience, poverty and chastity. In fact, the Pope said their vow of chastity can bear fruit to spiritual children. The Pope said the consecrated are not single women, but rather spiritual mothers.

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.
