Video. (Rome Reports) During his weekly General Audience, Pope Francis talked about the gift of piety. He explained that this gift of the Holy Spirit is deeper than mere 'outward religiosity.' For the Pope, the gift of piety, means experiencing 'ever anew, with joy and gratitude, the loving relationship with God.' It also helps recognize the others as 'brothers and sisters, members of God’s family'. That's why, the Pope concluded, those who have a deeper relationship with God usually pay more attention to their neighbors.
