Pope Francis explains how to live out a 'Christian style'

2014-03-06

During his daily Mass at the Vatican, Pope Francis talked about the "Christian style.” He explained that being Christian is all about following God and helping others.

The Pope added that Catholics should always imitate Jesus, who was generous and humble.

POPE FRANCIS
"And this style will save us, will give us joy and make us fruitful, because this path of denying ourselves, is there to give us life. It is opposed to the path of selfishness, of being attached to all the good things for myself alone…”

Pope asked Catholics to try to learn during Lent how to live in a "Christian style” of service, joy and abnegation.

"We can’t think of the Christian life apart from this path. There is always this journey, a journey that He took first: the journey of humility, the journey, too, of humiliation, of denying oneself, and then rising. But this is the path. Without the Cross, the Christian style is not Christian, and if the Cross is a Cross without Jesus, it is not Christian. The Christian style takes the Cross with Jesus and goes forward — not without the Cross, not without Jesus.”

"And this style will save us, will give us joy and make us fruitful, because this path of denying oneself is there to give us life, it is opposed to the path of selfishness, of being attached to all the good things for myself alone… This path is open to others, because the path Jesus took — of abnegation —, that path was to give life. The Christian style is precisely this style of humility, of mildness, of meekness.”

"And this is our joy, and this is our fruitfulness: to go with Jesus. Other joys are not fruitful; as Jesus said, they think only to gain the whole world, but in the end lose and ruin their lives. At the beginning of Lent, let us ask the Lord to teach us a little of this style of Christian service, of joy, of self-abnegation, and of fruitfulness with Him, as He desires.”
