‘Let the Holy Spirit Mold You Like Wax,’ Urges Pope

To ‘Reflect Jesus in Today’s World’

Let the Holy Spirit mold you like wax to reflect Jesus in today’s world.

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 30, 2018.

After his catechesis on Confirmation, the Pope said: ‘Dear brothers and sisters, in Confirmation God the Father has marked us, Christ has confirmed us and has placed the Spirit in our hearts as a pledge.

“Let us conserve this gift with care and allow ourselves to be molded, like wax, by its fiery charity, to reflect Jesus Christ in today’s world.”

Pope Francis concluded, saying: “May the Lord bless you all! “
