Alive in the Spirit

On May 26, 2019, in his Regina Coeli message, Pope Francis said that (the Christian way of life) is characterized by “faith in the Lord and the observance of his Word; docility to the action of the Spirit, who continually makes the Risen Lord alive and present; the acceptance of his peace and the witness we bear to him through an attitude of openness and encounter with others.”

He said the Church cannot remain stationary but relies on the active participation of each baptized person.

We are called, said Pope Francis, to free ourselves from our views, strategies, and objectives which often impede the journey of faith, and to listen with docility to the Word of God.  “It is the Spirit of God who guides us and guides the Church, so that her authentic face, beautiful and luminous, willed by Christ, may shine forth.”
