Pope's quotes: We are called to imitate God

A quote from Pope Francis:

"We are not called to serve merely in order to receive a reward, but rather to imitate God, who made Himself a servant for our love. Nor are we called to serve only now and again, but to live in serving. Service is thus a way of life; indeed it recapitulates the entire Christian way of life: serving God in adoration and prayer; being open and available; loving our neighbour with practical deeds; passionately working for the common good."

— Homily at Church of the Immaculate Conception, Bazu, Azerbaijan, Oct. 2, 2016
