Pope Francis to Kenya’s clergy: the joy of service

“Pope Francis held a special meeting with clergy, religious men and women, and seminarians at St. Mary’s School in Nairobi, Kenya, on Thursday. Putting aside his prepared text, the Holy Father spoke of the joy of a life of radical service to the Gospel and of the radical faithfulness to Christ that is the guarantee of happiness and success in ordained ministry and consecrated discipleship.

An official transcript of the Pope Francis’ extemporaneous remarks is being prepared.

In the meantime, we offer you the integral audio recording of the Holy Father’s address, with side-by-side English translation provided by the Holy Father’s official translator, Msgr. Mark Miles.
