VATICAN - Pope: Church does not need lukewarm, "backseat" Christians [AN]

In this morning’s Mass, Francis spoke about Saint Paul’s apostolic zeal. “Paul is a nuisance. He is a man who, with his preaching, his work, his attitude irritates others, because he bears witness to Jesus Christ”. We can ask the Holy Spirit “to give us all this apostolic fervour to be nuisance in the Church’s comfort zones and the grace to reach the outer edges of existence.”
