Pope to future Nuncios: no to ambition and personal aims

The ministry for which you are preparing asks you to escape from self-enclosure: it calls for a detachment from self that can only be achieved through an intense spiritual journey. This was the message of Pope Francis to students and staff of the Pontifical Ecclesiastical Academy, the institution that prepares men for service in the Diplomatic Corps of the Holy See. During his remarks to the students and staff of the Academy on Thursday, Pope Francis pointed to the example of the deep spirituality of Blessed John XXIII in the years when he was performing his service as papal representative.
