Pope Francis marked Monday’s feast of Saints Peter and Paul stressing the importance of unity in the Church and allowing oneself to be challenged by God, urging Catholics to spend less time complaining about what they see going wrong, and more time in prayer.
Having received Jesus’ love, Christians are called to go forth, give up comforts, and be willing to offer one’s life in martyrdom to fulfill the call to reach out to everyone, Pope Francis said on Friday.
During his homily at a Mass in St. Peter’s Square for the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul, Pope Francis asked the new cardinals, archbishops and all those present whether they are “‘armchair Catholics,’ who love to chat about how things are going in the church and the world,” or “apostles on the go.”
