Pope Francis tells Catholic Movements and Ecclesial communities: "You are the future of the Church"
Pope Francis praised Catholic Movements and Ecclesial communities on Sunday for the important part they play in witnessing to Christ in their lives and prayed to the Holy Spirit to inspire them and to continue to guide them. Hundreds of representatives of these movements and ecclesial communities arrived in Rome at the weekend to meet the Pope on the occasion of the Year of the Faith. The first meeting took place on Saturday and the conclusive one was on Sunday, the solemnity of Pentecost. Emmer McCarthy has the details.
