Pope’s quotes: Walk with the world

A quote from Pope Francis:

“Never lose the impulse to walk the streets of the world, with the knowledge that walking, even with faltering steps or limping, is always better than standing still, closed up in our own questions or our own certainties. Missionary passion, the joy of the encounter with Christ that leads us to share the beauty of faith with others, is a bulwark against the risk of being paralyzed by individualism.”

-- Audience with assembly of the Institutes of Secular Life, May 10, 2014
