The Pope has called for Christians to do what they can to live life out of love and respect for others.
The pontiff made the remarks during a visit to a Roman Catholic parish in the Italian city of Venezia Giulia, where he celebrated Mass on the eve of Easter.
The pope, who is a member of the church’s governing body, said it was up to Christians to love, respect and help each other.
“This is a beautiful gift of life, a gift of grace,” the pontiff said.
“We can all be guided by it, because we are all in this together.”
Francis urged people to take on the challenges that lie ahead.
“I am deeply moved by the love and faith that you are all sharing in the church,” he said.
Pope Francis arrives at the Vatican on Tuesday, where Francis gave his weekly address on Easter Sunday.
Francis is a cardinal, or head of the Catholic Church, and is also the first Latin American pope.
His visit to Venezio Giulia comes as the pontiffs pontiff seeks to strengthen ties with Latin America.
On Easter Sunday, Francis said he hopes to work with countries to promote tolerance, dialogue and coexistence.
“Let us show our love and welcome to those who have come here,” he told parishioners.
In his address, Francis called for unity and love in his community, saying that in the end the church is the “home of all” and that the church must always “go beyond the walls of walls.”
Francises remarks came as tensions between Catholics and other Christians flared again in recent weeks, especially in Mexico and the United States, where tensions over abortion and gay rights have erupted in recent years.
