Pope Francis said Wednesday that the Holy Spirit unites and grows the Church despite human limitations, sins and scandal.
"The Holy Spirit is the creator of communion, the artist of reconciliation … He builds the community of believers by harmonizing the unity of the body and the multiplicity of its members," Pope Francis said June 19 in St. Peter's Square.
The Holy Spirit "makes the Church grow by helping it to go beyond human limits, sins and any scandal," he said.
Dedicating his Wednesday catechesis to the Acts of the Apostles' account of the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, Pope Francis reflected on how the Holy Spirit transformed and strengthened St. Peter.
