Pope Francis: Unity is not everyone thinking alike

2014-10-31

A Brazilian orchestra welcomed Pope Francis at the start of his meeting with the "Catholic Fraternity of Charismatic Covenant Communities and Fellowships."

This group from the Catholic Charismatic Renewal celebrated an international meeting in Rome. 

During his address, Pope Francis explained what unity consists of inside the Church.

POPE FRANCIS
"Unity in diversity. Uniformity is not Catholic, it is not Christian. Unity in diversity.”

The Pope said that the Holy Spirit inspires unity and diversity and that Catholics, therefore, should not fear difference. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Unity is not uniformity, it is not to forcibly do everything together, nor thinking in the same way.”

Pope Francis concluded that the Catholic Charistmatic Renewal reminded the Church that what is most important is the prayer of praise. 

He also thanked them for their ecumenical aspects and for establishing good relations with Pentecostal communities.

After he ended his address, Pope Francis approached the youth of the orchestra. It is a social project that promotes the inclusion of at-risk youth through music.
