Francis again stresses humility as path to God

Pope Francis says we need to be small and humble to dialogue with God, but at the same time, God always chooses those who are small and who have the least power.

This was the core message of the Francis' homily at Tuesday morning Mass in the Santa Marta residence, according to Vatican Radio.

Francis explained how our Christian loyalty is all about "safeguarding our smallness so that we can have a dialogue with God." That's why, he continued, "humbleness, gentleness and daily habits are so important in the life of a Christian" because it safeguards our smallness and pleases God.
