Pope Francis – May 2023
“Ecclesiastical movements are a gift, they are the wealth of the Church! This is you!”
The movements renew the Church with her ability to dialogue in the service of the missionary message.
Every day, in their gift, they are rediscovering new ways to show the charm and novelty of the gospel.
How do they do it? Speaking different languages - sounds different, but creativity creates these differences – but always understand each other and make yourself understood.
and to work in the service of bishops and parishes to avoid any temptation to withdraw into oneself… For that could be the danger, right?
Always stay on the move, responding to the impulse of the Holy Spirit, to the challenges and changes of today’s world.
Keep yourselves in church harmony, because harmony is a gift of the Holy Spirit.
Let us pray that ecclesial movements and communities rediscover every day their missionary mission, putting their special gifts at the service of the needs of the world. in service “
