Pope Francis wants people to persure their dreams — and he said today that God wants people to “race boldly and joyfully toward lofty goals.”
In his homily in St. Peter’s Basilic, the Holy Father reminded the faithful that works of mercy are the “most beautiful works in life.” And he stressed that to reach dreams requires making “great choices.”
“Dear young people, dear brothers and sisters, let us not give up on great dreams. Let us not settle only for what is necessary,” the Pope urged. “The Lord does not want us to narrow our horizons or to remain parked on the roadside of life. He wants us to race boldly and joyfully towards lofty goals. We were not created to dream about vacations or the weekend, but to make God’s dreams come true in this world.
