Pope says impossible to be 'halfway' Christian
Francis urges faithful to commit fully to following Christ24 October, 12:15
Instead, the faithful must commit fully to Christ and walk the path of holiness, said the pope.
In a homily during Mass at Saint Martha's House, the Vatican residence where the pope lives, he said Christians can mark their lives by the periods before and after they encounter Christ.
"We have been re-made in Christ...it is a second creation," said the pope. "After this re-creation we must make the effort to walk on the path of righteousness".
