Vatican City, Oct 15, 2022 / 04:55 am
Pope Francis on Saturday urged members of an international Catholic movement to nurture unity and love for the Church, especially during times of crisis.
“Always love the Church. Love and preserve the unity of your ‘fellowship.’ Do not let your fraternity be wounded by divisions and oppositions, which play into the hands of the evil one,” the pope said in a meeting with Communion and Liberation at the Vatican on Saturday.
“Even difficult times can be times of grace, and rebirth,” he underlined in his speech to more than 50,000 members of the ecclesial movement.
Followers of Communion and Liberation traveled from over 60 countries for the encounter with Pope Francis in St. Peter’s Square Oct. 15.
