Pope's quotes: Needing a rebirth

A quote from Pope Francis:

“Our city must be reborn, morally and spiritually, as it seems as if everything is the same, that everything is relative; that the Gospel is a beautiful story about good things, pleasant to read, but which remains simply an idea. It does not touch the heart! Our city needs this rebirth. And this commitment is so important when we talk about educating children and young people, for which you as parents are responsible.”

-- Address to ecclesial Congress of the diocese of Rome, June 15, 2015
