Pope Francis – Homily on Community

This Homily was preached by Pope Francis at Casa Sanctae Martae on April 27, 2013. Theme: Christian Community and Parish Life. “What are our Christian Communities like”, he asks? “Are (our) communities open to the Holy Spirit, always bringing us forward to spread the Word of God, or are they closed, observing the commandments with precision, weighing the faithful down with many commandments like the Pharisees?”
