In this transitory and often difficult life, it is necessary to have Christ as the center of everything you do, working to increase your own faith in Jesus and the faith of those you serve, Pope Francis said Monday.
"Contemplating the life of Jesus and looking at our life as pilgrims in this world with so many challenges, we feel the need of a profound conversion and the urgency of reviving faith in Him," he said.
In a private audience Oct. 10 with members of the Society of the Catholic Apostolate – also called Pallottines after their founder St. Vincent Pallotti – the Holy Father spoke about how we can only have love for our neighbor if we have faith in Jesus first.
"Every day we are called to renew our trust in Christ and his life to be inspired to fulfill our mission," he said.
