POPE Tells 3 Ways to Know Christ

 

Francis Says Catechesis Isn’t Enough to Enter into Really Knowing Person of Christ, We Must Pray.

Catechism is not enough, we must pray to know Jesus.

According to Vatican Radio, Pope Francis urged faithful to do this during his daily morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta, drawing from St Paul’s letter to the Ephesians today where the Apostle prayed that they may be strengthened with power through the Holy Spirit and that Christ may dwell in their hearts.
