He also spoke about priesthood and pointed out to the line of priests from Aaron and Moses to John and then to our Lord Jesus. His Holiness called the faithful to renew their commitment to the faith they were baptized into and to show the spiritual fruits of their baptism in their lives through their deeds and showing love to others as befits the disciples of Christ.
