Pope’s quotes: No one is alone

A quote from Pope Francis:

“No one becomes a Christian alone; we must think first, with gratitude, of all those who have preceded us. If we believe, if we pray, if we know the Lord and are able to listen to His Word, we feel close to Him and recognize Him in our brethren, and because others before us have lived faith and transmitted it to us, have taught us. The Church is a family in which one is welcomed and learns to live as believers and disciples of the Lord Jesus.”

-- General audience, St. Peter’s Square, June 25, 2014
