CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis met on March 17 with members of the Congregation of St. Joseph, and urged them to bear in mind constantly “the primacy of God’s love.”

The Pope contrasted that approach with a strictly disciplinary attitude. He said: “When you want to regulate everything, you cage the Holy Spirit. And there are many —religious, consecrated, priests and bishops —who have caged the Holy Spirit.”
