Pope sends 7-minute video message to Pentecostal gathering
February 21, 2014
Pope Francis has sent a seven-minute video message to a Pentecostal gathering sponsored by Kenneth Copeland Ministries.
During the message, the Pope emphasized that Christians are brothers and compared separated Christians to Jacob’s sons who journeyed to Egypt, where they were reconciled to their brother Joseph.
Pope Francis also expressed confidence that God would bring to completion the “miracle of unity” that He has already begun to work.
Catholic News Service reported that the Pope’s extemporaneous remarks were recorded on the iPhone of Tony Palmer, a Pentecostal leader and friend of the Pope, during a January meeting at the Vatican.
