Pope Francis: We're not Christian without the Church

In his Thursday morning Mass, Pope Francis talked about the identity of Christians. He said one cannot understand a Christian outside of the people of God. Being Christian, he explained is not about being alone, but instead about being part of a Church. 

"Our Christian identity is belonging to a people: The Church.  Without this, we are not Christians. We entered the Church through Baptism: there we become Christians.”
To understand Jesus, he explained, one must first  understand history. That's why he called on Christians to pray for the grace of memory.
