Pope's Pentecost Mass: The Holy Spirit drives our mission, promotes unity in the Church

2013-05-20

POPE FRANCIS
“This is not a question of novelty for novelty’s sake, the search for something new to relieve our boredom, as is so often the case in our own day. The newness which God brings into our life is something that actually brings fulfillment, that gives true joy, true serenity, because God loves us and desires only our good.”

The second point is harmony. The Pope said that despite all the different movements, charisms and missions, all these groups fall under the umbrella of the Universal Church.

POPE FRANCIS
“The Holy Spirit would appear to create disorder in the Church, since He brings the diversity of charisms and gifts; yet all this, by His working, is a great source of wealth, for the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of unity, which does not mean uniformity, but which leads everything back to harmony. In the Church, it is the Holy Spirit who creates harmony.”

As his third point, the Pope explained that the Holy Spirit drives the mission of the Church, by opening all doors, so that everyone can go out and spread the Gospel.
 
POPE FRANCIS
“The Holy Spirit is the soul of mission. The events that took place in Jerusalem almost 2,000 years ago are not something far removed from us; they are events which affect us and become a lived experience in each of us.”

Towards the end, the Pope thanked all the movements for their work. He also encouraged them to go out of their comfort zones to preach the Gospel.
