Pope Francis said the Holy Spirit is the protagonist of the proclamation of the Gospel, and only He can change hearts.
The pontiff said there have been some pastoral plans that seem to be perfect, but they were incapable of changing hearts because they were an end unto themselves.
Francis was speaking during the homily on June 11 during his Mass in the Domus Sanctae Marthae.
The pope said evangelization has three fundamental dimensions: Proclamation, service and gratuitousness. It is not with an entrepreneurial attitude that Jesus sends us . No, it is with the Holy Spirit. This is courage. The true courage behind evangelization is not human stubbornness. No, it is the Spirit who gives us courage and who carries you forward, he said, according to Vatican News, the official service of the Vaticans Secretariat for Communication.
Francis said that pursuing a career or success in the Church is a sure sign that someone doesnt know what evangelization is for the one who commands must be the one who serves.
We can say good things but without service, it is not proclamation. It may seem to be, but it is not, because the Spirit not only carries you forward to proclaim the truths of the Lord and the life of the Lord, but He also brings you to the service of the brothers and sisters, even in small things, the pope said.

How’s Papa Francis expect us to pay for his infinity Muslims if we’re not allowed to make money?
Even a blind squirrel.......
Of course this fake poop would know.
It’s a good thing for the Pope that some folks have an entrepnurial attitude. Otherwise he would have nothing to eat.
I wonder if he has read the Bible....just thinking out loud.....
The Pope does not know the Bible.
Remember the parable of the talents? The Pope apparently thinks the servant who buried his was the good one.
Jesus expects good stewardship Mathew 25:14-30
Mat 25:30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
The Pope is a Marxist, not even a Christian let alone a Roman Catholic.
Let’s start with Proverbs 6, 10 and 30.
And so on...
The Good Samaritan voluntarily took the hurt victim to an inn. There, he instructed the innkeeper to take care of the man and “keep a tab,” sodaspeak. The Good Samaritan returned sometime later, paid the innkeeper, and went on his way.
He didn’t lobby for the Romans to subsidize his care, to reimburse the innkeepers expenses, and he didn’t demand free Caesarcare.
I dunno - is he saying Jesus doesnt send us with an entrepreneurial attitude but the Holy Spirit does? As in Jesus laid the foundation but the holy spirit compels us to discovery?
No, it is with the Holy Spirit. This is courage. The true courage behind evangelization is not human stubbornness. No, it is the Spirit who gives us courage and who carries you forward,
While I will not deny the Holy Spirit gives us courage, is anyone here inspired by this?
Frankie, Frankie, Frankie.
Pope Francis should remember Pope John Paul I
The fraud Popester sticks his foot in his mouth again. He really should have it surgically implanted.
The ImPopester is a Marxist who loves muslims and hates Christians and capitalism.
Hows that Vatican bank going Frank?
