Pope Francis’ New Year Resolutions for his staff:

Posted: January 15, 2015 in Papal

– “Take care of your spiritual life, your relationship with God, because this is the backbone of everything we do and everything we are.” – “Take care of your family life, giving your children and loved ones not just money, but most of all your time, attention and love.” – “Take care of your relationships with others, transforming your faith into life and your words into good works, especially on behalf of the needy.” – “Be careful how you speak, purify your tongue of offensive words, vulgarity and worldly decadence.” – “Heal wounds of the heart with the oil of forgiveness, forgiving those who have hurt us and medicating the wounds we have caused others.” – “Look after your work, doing it with enthusiasm, humility, competence, passion and with a spirit that knows how to thank the Lord.” – “Be careful of envy, lust, hatred and negative feelings that devour our interior peace and transform us into destroyed and destructive people.” – “Watch out for anger that can lead to vengeance; for laziness that leads to existential euthanasia; for pointing the finger at others, which leads to pride; and for complaining continually, which leads to desperation.” – “Take care of brothers and sisters who are weaker … the elderly, the sick, the hungry, the homeless and strangers, because we will be judged on this.”
