Pope Francis: Don't let your vanity take control

2013-05-13

POPE FRANCIS
"And when a little vanity creeps in, when someone believes themselves to be a winner of the ‘Nobel Prize for Holiness,” then memory is also good for us. The Bible says, ‘But ... remember where I took you from, the very least of the flock. You were behind, in the flock.’ Memory is a great grace, and when a Christian has no memory – this is a hard thing to say, but it's true - he is not a Christian, he is an idolater. Because he is before a god that has no road, that does not know how to move forward on the road. Our God is moving forward on the road with us, He is among us, He walks with us. He saves us. He makes history with us. Be mindful of all that, and life becomes more fruitful, with the grace of memory.”

The Pope celebrated Monday's Mass with employees of Vatican Radio and the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants.
