Pope at Santa Marta: Evangelization is not about advertising. Speak Frankly!

2015-04-13

The Pope is once again celebrating his public morning Mass in Casa Santa Marta. In his Monday homily, the Pope said that evangelizing isn't about advertising the Christian faith, but rather about speaking freely and frankly. 

POPE FRANCIS
"We do not advertise Jesus Christ to have more 'members’ in our 'spiritual society.' Right? This is not necessary. No! There’s no need. It’s not Christian. What a Christian does is announce with courage, the Word of Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit.” 

The Pope's advisory council is also meeting this week, from the 13th to the 15th of April. Some of its members attended the Pope's Mass.
