Reach out to lapsed Christians, Pope says in video
July 17, 2017
“Let us never forget that our joy is Jesus Christ—his faithful and inexhaustible love,” Pope Francis said in the brief video. “When a Christian becomes sad, it means that he has distanced himself from Jesus.”
The Pope added:
We must not leave him alone! We should offer him Christian hope—with our words, yes, but more with our testimony, with our freedom, with our joy.
