Pope's General Audience: “Nobody is useless in the Church, we are all equal”

2013-06-26

POPE FRANCIS
"No one is useless in the Church – and should anyone tell you, "Go home, you’re useless!” that’s not true. No one is useless in the Church. We are all needed in order to build this temple. No one is secondary: "Ah, I am the most important one in the Church!” No! We are all equal in the eyes of God. But, some of you may ask, "Mr. Pope, sir, you are not equal to us.” But I am just like each of you. We are all equal.”

As a metaphor, the Pope explained  that in order to build the Temple of the Church, "living stones" are needed. That’s why Christians, he said, should be active, they should care about others and should not shut themselves away.

POPE FRANCIS
"If we ask ourselves, "Where we can meet God? Where can we enter into communion with Him through Christ? Where can we find the light of the Holy Spirit to enlighten our lives?" The answer is, "in the People of God, among us, for we are Church – among us, within the People of God, in the Church – there we shall meet Jesus, we shall meet the Holy Spirit, we shall meet the Father.”

As he made his way through Saint Peter’s Square, Pope Francis was accompanied by his personal secretary, Argentinian priest Fabián Pedacchio, who is working as the Pope’s closest collaborator and often accompanies him in public appearances.
