Papa Francisco en español ...
En Octubre del 2013, el Papa Francisco ofreció estas palabras sobre la santidad: "Dios nos dice, 'No tengas miedo de la santidad. No tengas miedo de apuntar alto, de dejarte amar y purificar por Dios. No tengas miedo de dejarte guiar por el Espíritu Santo. ¡Dejémonos contagiar de la santidad de Dios!'"
