WORDS OF POPE FRANCIS

he poor, even those with poor health, are a source of wealth for the Church

 
printable version

Do not be ashamed to be a precious treasure of the Church!

Do not look upon yourselves only as the objects of solidarity and charity, but feel you are fully included in the life and mission of the Church. You have your own place, a specific role in the parish and in every sector of the Church.

Your presence, which may be silent but is actually far more eloquent than many words, your prayer, the daily offering of your suffering in union with those of Jesus Crucified for the salvation of the world, the patient and even joyful acceptance of your condition, are a spiritual resource and a patrimony for every Christian community.

(ADDRESS OF POPE FRANCIS TO THE MEMBERS OF UNITALSI Saturday, 9 November 2013)
