Patriarch Youssef: the Gospel can be proclaimed only for “a force that is not ours”
Agenzia Fides carried this news item of Patriarch Youssef on October 20, 2021 which digested a homily he delivered at a recent ordination of a Melkite bishop.
“In our life as pastors we can fall into the temptation to confuse strength and authoritarianism, strength and arrogance. Our flock needs to see a power that is not ours, but that of the Holy Spirit that dwells in us. Then they are never afraid”.
