September 2017. The Pope Video: The doors of our parishes are always open, not waiting for people to come in but ready to go out to meet them. Let us pray that parishes continue in the service of others and in the transmission of the faith. “Parishes must be in contact with homes, with people’s lives, with the life of society. They have to be houses where the door is always open so as to go forth toward others. And it is important that this going-forth follows a clear proposal of faith. The doors must be opened so that Jesus can go out with all of the joy of his message. Let us pray for our parishes, that they not be simple offices, but that animated by a missionary spirit, may be places where faith is communicated and charity is seen”.
