According to the Supreme Pontiff, “His method of transforming situations does not burden them, but rather lifts them up, does not force them, but liberates them. Jesus transforms the person from within, including each one of you, so that you can express your best energies and talents. Follow Jesus with complete confidence, Thinking about your growth, not about how to rise above others, but about how to put yourself at the service of others. The greatest is the one who knows how to lean on those who have fallen, and take some of their burden. Burdens, with tenderness, which is true strength.
Therefore, to have an attitude of openness, as a “Catholic” “means to have an open and integrated vision of the human person, in all its dimensions, which the Bible reveals to us and which Jesus Christ fully fulfilled.”
