Words of The Holy Father

Tuesday 13th November 2018

 

Serving God is free: we are sons and daughters, not slaves. To serve God in peace – with serenity, when he has removed from us the obstacles that rid us of peace and serenity – is serving him with freedom. It is no coincidence, when we serve the Lord freely, we feel an ever more profound peace. It is like hearing once again the Lord say: “Come, come, come, good and faithful servant!”. We are good servants of the Lord. Above all, we are “unworthy servants”. In order to do this, however, we need his grace: by ourselves, we are unable.
