Pope’s Advice for Daily Life: Cultivate an Attitude of Christ’s Disciples

Holy Father Reminds Arabic-speaking Pilgrims to Make Their Lives Gifts of Love

“I give a warm welcome to the Arabic-speaking pilgrims, particularly those from the Middle East!”, said Pope Francis during his General Audience of March 7, 2018.

This morning’s General Audience was held at 9:30 in the Vatican’s Paul VI Hall where the Holy Father Francis met with groups of pilgrims and faithful from Italy and from all over the world.

The Pope spoke in Italian, translated immediately into Arabic by one of his collaborators in the Roman Curia: “Dear brothers and sisters, I invite you to cultivate the attitude of being a disciple of Christ in your daily lives, making your life a free, gratis gift of love, and constructing concrete communion in the Church and with all.”

Pope Francis concluded, praying: “May the Lord bless you!”
