Vatican City, 06 October, 2021 / 12:00 pm (ACI Africa).
Pope Francis said Wednesday that true freedom is found by opening one’s heart to the grace of Christ.
“The truest freedom, that from slavery to sin, flows from the Cross of Christ. We are free from slavery to sin by the Cross of Christ,” Pope Francis said Oct. 6.
“Right there, where Jesus allowed himself to be nailed, making himself a slave, God placed the source of the liberation of the human person.”
Speaking to pilgrims gathered in Paul VI Hall for his general audience, Pope Francis pointed to the example of St. Paul, who he said experienced the mystery of God’s love when he wrote “I have been crucified with Christ” in his Epistle to the Galatians.
