Pope's quotes: Firm in the faith

A quote from Pope Francis:

"To be firm in the faith means the capacity to receive faith from others, to conserve that faith and to pass it on. You said, speaking about being strong in the faith: 'to keep alive the memory of the past, the nation's history, and to have courage to dream and to build a bright future.' To be firm in the faith means to not forget that which we have learned, indeed, to make it grow and give it to our children."
