 Top Popes’ Quotes About Following Jesus Christ


1. The Political Programme Of Jesus

“The programme of Jesus is ‘a heart which sees’ . This heart sees where love is needed and acts accordingly.”
Pope Benedict, Deus Caritas Est, 2005

2. When We Follow Jesus, We Start Feeling Free

“If we let Christ into our lives, we lose nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing of what makes life free, beautiful and great. No! Only in this friendship are the doors of life opened wide. Only in this friendship is the great potential of human existence truly revealed. Only in this friendship do we experience beauty and liberation. And so, today, with great strength and great conviction, on the basis of long personal experience of life, I say to you, dear young people: Do not be afraid of Christ! He takes nothing away, and he gives you everything. When we give ourselves to him, we receive a hundredfold in return.”
Pope Benedict 16th, Homily, April 2005

Pope John Paul II, World Youth Day, 2000

5. Jesus Is A Model To Health Professionals

 “To the doctors, nurses and all the other people working in this hospital, to assure them of Our esteem and to encourage them to carry on with their admirable work. Christ is your model too, Christ who showed so much sympathy for the sick and infirm and all those afflicted by suffering.
Pope Paul VI, Pilgramige to Australia, 1970

6. Following Jesus Involves Loving The People And The Outdoors 

 “Just think that most of Jesus’ public ministry took place on the streets, among the people; to preach the Gospel, to heal physical and spiritual wounds. This crowd of which the Gospel often speaks is a humanity marked by suffering. It is a humanity marked by suffering, toil and problems. It is to this poor humanity that Jesus’ powerful, liberating and renewing action is directed.”
Pope Francis, Angelus, 4th February 2018
