Vatican City, Jan 15, 2020 / 04:00 am
While often persecuted and misunderstood, the Church never tires of announcing the love of God made present in Jesus Christ, Pope Francis said Wednesday.
With this reflection, the pope completed an eight-month long series of weekly Biblical meditations on every chapter of the Acts of the Apostles.
"Dear brothers and sisters, at the end of this journey, lived together following the race of the Gospel in the world, the Holy Spirit revives in each of us the call to be courageous and joyful evangelizers," Pope Francis said Jan. 15 in the Pope Paul VI Hall.
The Acts of the Apostles expresses the "dynamism of the Word of God," the pope said. He called God's word "an active yeast" in history that is "capable of transforming situations and opening new paths."
