Christians who do not walk this path of transformation will instead become rigid and orphaned
God's kingdom is not a well-organized structure where only strict adherents of the law can enter but a path that is walked upon every day with meekness and docility, Pope Francis said, according to CNS.
Christians are called to walk that path of the kingdom and not fall victim to "a behavior of rigidity" that prevents the Holy Spirit from growing, the pope said in his homily Oct. 25 during his morning Mass in the Domus Sanctae Marthae.
"The kingdom does not grow in this way and neither do we grow. It is docility to the Holy Spirit that makes us grow and be transformed," he said.
Christians who do not walk this path of transformation, he warned, will instead become rigid and orphaned.

Such features come to you for FREE, but it cost us to produce them.
