Pope: The true Christian lives of prayer and mission. It's like breathing!
Francis meets with members of the Catholic Fraternity of Charismatic Covenant Communities and Fellowships, and urges them to unity in diversity "which means recognizing and accepting with joy the different gifts that the Holy Spirit gives to each one and putting them all in the service of the Church. It is listening, accepting differences, having the freedom to think differently and expressing it! With all due respect to the other who is my brother". A strong call to "remember the ecumenical nature" of the charismatic movement: "For persecutors, we are one! Ecumenism of the blood."

Pope: Putting law above love is not a model but mark of a hypocrite
In his homily this morning, Francis speaks of the Gospel passage where Jesus opposes the Pharisees who would not heal a sick man on the Sabbath, denying help to his parents because "they had given everything to the Temple.

Pope: "No family without a home. No farmer without land. No worker with rights"
Meeting with the Popular Movements Francis asks for change in a system that is “an idolatrous cult of money and global indifference." We must "do so with courage but also with intelligence.

Fr Belisario: From Colombia to Bangladesh, the "madness" of the mission
by Bernardo Cervellera
Fr Belisario de Jesus Montoya Cyrus, 29, is a Colombian priest from the diocese of Sonsón-Rionegro. A month ago, he left for Bangladesh.
