During his homily, Pope Francis said their lives should be decentralized to allow Jesus to be the at the center of it all.

POPE FRANCIS
"I would like to propose three simple thoughts based on three expressions: keep Christ and Church in the center; let yourselves be conquered by Him to serve others; feel shame in our limits and sins, so we can become humble before Him and before mankind.”

At the end of the Mass, the Pope approached and prayed at the altar of St. Ignatius of Loyola. He also gave a floral offering to Our Lady, and prayed before the tomb of Father Pedro Arrupe, the Jesuit superior general who served until 1981.
