Let us be a welcoming Church
TOP POPE FRANCIS' QUOTES ABOUT THE CHURCH
1. Let's Be A Welcoming Church
"The Church is called to be the house of the Father, with doors always wide open. One concrete sign of such openness is that our church doors should always be open, so that if someone, moved by the Spirit, comes there looking for God, he or she will not find a closed door... Everyone can share in some way in the life of the Church; everyone can be part of the community.... This is especially true of the sacrament which is itself “the door”: baptism...the Church is not a tollhouse; it is the house of the Father, where there is a place for everyone, with all their problems."
Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium, 2013, 47
2. Let's Be A Church For Today's World
"I dream of a “missionary option”, that is, a missionary impulse capable of transforming everything, so that the Church’s customs, ways of doing things, times and schedules, language and structures can be suitably channeled for the evangelisation of today’s world rather than for her self-preservation."
Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium, 2013, 27
