By now, most of us have seen the video of the pope making the pledge of allegiance to Jesus Christ on March 22nd, 2011.
The video, titled, The Faith Promise, is one of the most famous papal sermons.
The video was released on March 30th, 2011, by the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, which is responsible for developing papal communiques.
The clip was posted to YouTube on January 25th, 2012, and has been viewed over a million times since then.
In the video, the Pope addresses the entire congregation at the first Mass at St. Peter’s Basilica, a Mass celebrated by the Roman Catholic Church and its worldwide followers.
In the speech, he says that the faith that he professes is not a personal, personal faith, but the faith of the whole Church.
“The faith of all Christians is the faith which God gave to all His creation, to all people, and to all generations, and which He has entrusted to all those who love Him and to whom He has committed the mystery of the Incarnation,” the Pope said.
As a result of this commitment, the Church is called to act in a manner that reflects the unity of the Christian faith, the pope said.
“This faith is the basis of Christian charity, which can never be separated from the Church,” the pope continued.
“If there is a need to divide, then this faith is not for us.
For us, this faith cannot be divided, it must be united.
To do so would mean to be divided from the very faith in which we stand.”
The Pope makes a strong case for unity of faith in the context of the Catholic Church.
The church is not alone in the world in seeking to share its faith with all.
“When we are united, our lives are more precious,” the pontiff said.
However, the world’s Catholic churches are not united.
Many of the churches in the United States have historically been very hierarchical, which makes it difficult for people to know how to discern which are true, true and faithful churches.
“The church has always been divided,” the Pontiff said, adding that the church must be seen in the same light as other faiths.
He said that the Church must be treated like any other faith.
When it comes to faith, he said, “the Church must teach what it teaches and not allow its followers to do their own thinking.”
He continued: “To me, this means that all of us must be baptized into the Catholic faith.”
The pope emphasized the importance of the sacrament of reconciliation, which he said is the key to salvation.
“We must always have the grace of reconciliation in our hearts and in our lives, for this reconciliation will not be achieved unless it is accompanied by the grace to love God and others,” the Vatican said.
The pope concluded with a call to unity and unity in love.
“The world’s religions are divided,” he said.
The video has been watched over 10 million times and the Pope has received numerous awards, including the Nobel Peace Prize, the American Cross of Gold and the Knight’s Cross of Merit.
