What is the primary and ultimate need of the Church?


#1

Blessed Pope Paul VI gave his answer during a General Audience on Nov. 29 1972 .

I believe what he said is as true , and probably more true , for the Church today .

Pope Paul VI said : “More than once we have asked ourselves what the greatest needs of the Church are… what is the primary and ultimate need of our beloved and holy Church? We must say it with holy fear because, as you know, this concerns the mystery of the Church, her life: this need is the Spirit… the Church needs her eternal Pentecost; she needs fire in her heart, words on her lips, a glance that is prophetic."
