Words of Relevance: Pope Francis

Today's quote is from the first   Encyclical of Pope Francis: Lumen Fidei., issued in Rome, on June 29, 2013.  The Decalogue, as most Christians know, refers to The Ten Commandments.

Heres' the quote:

The Decalogue is not a set of negative commands, but concrete directions for emerging from the desert of the selfish and self-enclosed ego in order to enter into dialogue with God, to be embraced by his mercy and then to bring that mercy to others. Faith thus professes the love of God, origin and upholder of all things, and lets itself be guided by this love in order to journey towards the fullness of communion with God.
