Pope Francis' answer to the question: What should I say to my friend who is an atheist?

Pope Francis, in his homily on Friday during Mass at his residence, the Casa Santa Marta, referred to a question he was asked during the recent World Youth Day festival in Poland: "What should I say to my friend who is an atheist?" Pope Francis answered that "the last thing you need to do is say something! Begin to do, and he will see what you are doing and ask you about it; and when he asks you, then tell him." Live out the faith through actions and talk "with meekness, with love, with no desire to win an argument."
