The following is an excerpt from a message delivered by Pope Francis on January 15. He calls us to task – “You must go out.”
Sometimes I think….that the best thing we could do for many Christians is to sell them mothballs…so they can put them on their clothes and go about their lives so they do not become moth-eaten. Because if you are closed off you will become moth-eaten.
You must go out. You must go out.
You must share the message of Jesus. It is not enough to talk about the message of Jesus – you must give the message of Jesus – as I receive it from Him through a brother or sister, who gives me grace and then I give it.
This is what all Christians must do. I must not keep the message of Jesus to myself.
It is not to keep, it is to give.
