Pope Francis in a crowd

Religious life ought to promote growth in the church by way of attraction. The church must be attractive. Wake up the world! Be witnesses of a different way of doing things, of acting, of living! . . . It is this witness that I expect of you. Religious should be men and women who are able to wake the world up.

 

—Pope Francis, meeting with the Union of Superiors General, November 29, 2013
