Audience Address: On Belonging to the Church "There are those who think they can have a personal, direct, immediate relation with Jesus Christ outside the communion and mediation of the Church. These are dangerous and harmful temptations"
Vatican City, (Zenit.org). Here is a translation of the address Pope Francis gave during this morning’s general audience. As he did last week, due to the challenging Roman summer weather, Francis met with the sick and their families in Paul VI Hall, prior to the audience. The Holy Father continued with his catechesis series on the Church.
