Pope Francis on Saint Charles de Foucauld: ‘Focus on his Joy’
Speaking off-the-cuff, the Pope said Charles de Foucauld’s spirituality helped him personally when he was studying theology.
“He helped me overcome my crises and find a more simple, less Pelagian path of Christian life which is closer to the Lord.”
The Pope concluded his speech by inviting the group to focus on St. Charles’ joy, “because joy is the purest witness that we can offer to Jesus in every place and time.”
