Pope at Pentecost Mass: There are no "right or left" Christians, but only those from Jesus

At Pentecost Mass, Pope Francis recalled that the Church is diversity and unity at the same time.

He warned against the danger of moving from extreme to extreme, saying, those who forget diversity eliminate freedom and those who forget unity destroy dialogue.


"They become followers of a part instead of brothers and sisters in the same Spirit; Christians of the 'right or left' before becoming those from Jesus."

He also stressed that the arrival of the Holy Spirit brought the gift of forgiveness. It is an instrument that renews the heart, filling it with hope.


"This is the beginning of the Church, this is the glue that holds us together, the cement that unites the bricks of the house: forgiveness."

At the end of the ceremony, as on many big occasions Pope Francis entered the popemobile to greet the 60,000 people who participated in the ceremony.
