In his Sunday Angelus audience, Pope Francis emphasized the importance of truly living a Christian life rather than letting it become a superficial label.
"In the gospel, Jesus tells us that to be a Christian is not to have a 'label' but to live and testify to faith in prayer, in works of charity, in the promotion of justice, in doing good," Pope Francis told the audience gathered in St. Peter's Square Aug. 25.
Jesus himself is the way to a truly lived faith, explained the Pope.
Sunday's gospel reading includes the story of a man who asks Jesus if there are few that will be saved.
