2016-01-29

Pope Francis met with members of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Their leader, Cardinal Müller thanked the Pope at the encounter.

"We thank you for your paternal welcome and your intense testimony of life.”

Pope Francis asked them to use the Jubilee of Mercy to renovate their faith.

POPE FRANCIS
"Because mercy is the cornerstone that sustains the life of the Church: the first truth of the Church, it is said, is the love of Christ.”

In his speech, the Pope discussed three different themes. He said it is important to carry out works of mercy and that Catholics must know what they are.

He explained that living the faith also means living morally. As an example, he pointed to clergy sex abuse cases. The Pope thanked the Congregation for their work on the issue.

He added that it is necessary to make people see the transcendent dimension of life. If not, "Europe runs the risk of losing the spiritual humanism that it loves and defends.”

To conclude, he applauded the collegiality in the congregation and called on them to keep collaborating closely with bishops and episcopal conferences.

To conclude the meeting, the Pope invited them to pray the Angelus together.

"We can pray the Angelus, it's time.”
