What does having inner freedom mean? First, being free from personal projects. Free from the possibility of planning your future or from the prospect of staying for any length of time in a place of “your own” pastoral action. It means, making yourself free also with regard to the culture and mindset from which you,. This is not in order to forget it or even less to deny it, but rather to open yourselves in the charity of understanding different cultures and meeting people who belong to worlds far distant from your own.
– Pope Francis, The Church of Mercy
