Pope Francis reminded some 15,000 people gathered at St Peter’s Square on 15 July that all Christians are called to be missionaries, concerned more with sharing the Gospel than with earning money or even with being successful at winning converts.
Before reciting the Angelus prayer at his address, the Pope said: “A baptised person who does not feel the need to proclaim the Gospel, to announce Christ, is not a good Christian”.
