In his daily homily, Pope Francis focused on the fact that we have been "re-created" in Christ, urging those in attendance to take their faith seriously, rather than committing halfway.
"People do not take it seriously! Lukewarm Christians: 'But, yes, yes, but, no, no.' Neither here nor there - as our mothers said, 'rosewater Christians' - no!"
The Holy Father offered his reflections to those present for his Oct. 24 daily Mass in the Saint Martha guesthouse of the Vatican.
"We have been re-made in Christ," urged the Pope at the beginning of his homily, "What Christ has done in us is a re-creation: the blood of Christ has re-created."
