‘A truly Christian life bears witness to Christ’

It is a Christian’s task to proclaim the good news of the Gospel and to bear the good fruit of love in the world, Pope Francis said yesterday. Source: CNA.

“The fruit that, like the branches, we must give, bears witness to our Christian life,” the Pope said

“After Jesus ascended to the Father, it is the task of the disciples – it is our task – to continue to proclaim the Gospel in words and in deeds,” he added. “And they and us, disciples of Jesus, do so by bearing witness to his love: the fruit to be borne is love.”

Francis gave his weekly Sunday reflection from a window overlooking St Peter’s Square. Afterward, he led the recitation of the Regina Caeli, a Marian prayer said during the Easter season.

The Pope explained the importance of being attached to Christ, the vine, so that “we receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and in this way we can do good to our neighbour and do good to society, to the Church”.
