Pope Francis asked for prayers for Church unity and for the new cardinals.

The Pope also explained that Baptism makes everyone a child of God. Therefore, no person has more dignity than others, despite having more responsibilities.

"Those who have received the ministry to guide, to preach, to administer the Sacraments, must not feel that they own special powers, that they are masters. They must put themselves in the service of the community.”

He closed off by saying that moments like Saturday's Consistory should strengthen the "faith, love for Christ and for the Church.
