Invoke the Holy Spirit more….
Pope Francis encouraged Arabic-speaking Christians, especially those from the Middle East present in St. Peter’s Square, to do so during today’s General Audience of Wednesday, May 23, 2018.
After his catechesis on Confirmation, the Pope said: ‘Dear brothers and sisters, the Holy Spirit teaches us and gives us the wisdom and the truth of Christ. 
“Let us invoke the Spirit more often, to guide us on the path of the true disciples of Jesus. 
Pope Francis concluded, saying: “May the Lord bless you all! “
