Pope Francis gets rock star treatment at evangelical church

"Welcome.â? Pope Francis made his way back to Caserta, less than 48 hours after his first trip there, to meet with his friend Pastor Giovanni Traettino.  But he wasn't the only one looking forward to his visit. Dozens of members from the Pentecostal Church of the Reconciliation greeted Pope Francis very affectionately. During a brief audience at the Church, Traettino led the Pope and his congregation in reciting the Lord's Prayer, together.  After a brief song, Pope Francis addressed the group. He talked to them about God's first commandment to Abraham, to go and walk before Him. POPE FRANCIS  "I don't understand a Christian who stands still, a Christian who doesn't walk. I don't understand. A Christian should walk forward.â? Following his brief audience with the Pentecostal congregation, the group recited the Lord's Prayer again. He then had lunch with the entire group at the Church, before heading back to the Vatican, ending his private visit.  RCA CTV FA -BN Up:JRB #Pope
