Pope Francis

Pope Francis

Once man has lost the fundamental orientation which unifies his existence, he breaks down into the multiplicity of his desires; in refusing to await the time of promise, his life-story disintegrates into a myriad of unconnected instants.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Idolatry, then, is always polytheism, an aimless passing from one lord to another. Idolatry does not offer a journey but rather a plethora of paths leading nowhere and forming a vast labyrinth.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The question of truth is really a question of memory, deep memory, for it deals with something prior to ourselves and can succeed in uniting us in a way that transcends our petty and limited individual consciousness. It is a question about the origin of all that is, in whose light we can glimpse the goal and thus the meaning of our common path.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The media only writes about the sinners and the scandals, he said, but that's normal, because 'a tree that falls makes more noise than a forest that grows.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Each of us has a vision of good and of evil. We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is Good.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Proselytism is solemn nonsense, it makes no sense. We need to get to know each other, listen to each other and improve our knowledge of the world around us. Sometimes after a meeting I want to arrange another one because new ideas are born and I discover new needs. This is important: to get to know people, listen, expand the circle of ideas. The world is crisscrossed by roads that come closer together and move apart, but the important thing is that they lead towards the Good.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Indifference to our neighbor and to God also represents a real temptation for us Christians. Each year during Lent we need to hear once more the voice of the prophets who cry out and trouble our conscience.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It also happens to me that when I meet a clericalist, I suddenly become anti-clerical. Clericalism should not have anything to do with Christianity. St. Paul, who was the first to speak to the Gentiles, the pagans, to believers in other religions, was the first to teach us that.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I distrust a charity that costs nothing and does not hurt.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Life rejuvenates and acquires energy when it multiplies: It is enriched, not impoverished!More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We forget to remain focused on the things that really matter.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The Bishops of the Philippines have asked that this year be set aside as the �Year of the Poor.’ I hope that this prophetic summons will challenge everyone, at all levels of society, to reject every form of corruption which diverts resources from the poor, and to make concerted efforts to ensure the inclusion of every man and woman and child in the life of the community.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
How many young people among you are like this? You know how to give and yet you have ever learned how to receive. You still lack one thing. Become a beggar. This is what you still lack. Learn how to beg. This isn’t easy to understand. To learn how to beg. To learn how to receive with humility.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
So many of you have lost everything. I don't know what to say to you. But the Lord does know what to say to you. Some of you have lost part of your families. All I can do is keep silence and walk with you all with my silent heart.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Do good, we will meet one another there.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Being Christian is not just obeying orders but means being in Christ, thinking like him, acting like him, loving like him; it means letting him take possession of our life and change it, transform it, and free it from the darkness of evil and sin. ... Let us show the joy of being children of God, the freedom that living in Christ gives us which is true freedom, the freedom that saves us from the slavery of evil, of sin and of death!More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Francis of Assisi tells us we should work to build peace. But there is no true peace without truth! There cannot be true peace if everyone is his own criterion, if everyone can always claim exclusively his own rights, without at the same time caring for the good of others, of everyone, on the basis of the nature that unites every human being on this earth.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Today Saint Paul has told us that in Christ we have become God’s adopted children, brothers and sisters in Christ. This is who we are. This is our identity.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Pay attention, my young friends: to go against the current; this is good for the heart, but we need courage to swim against the tide. ... We Christians were not chosen by the Lord for little things; push onwards toward the highest principles. Stake your lives on noble ideals, my dear young people!More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
While all too many people live in dire poverty, others are caught up in materialism and lifestyles which are destructive of family life and the most basic demands of Christian morality.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Be present to those who, living in the midst of a society burdened by poverty and corruption, are broken in spirit, tempted to give up, to leave school and to live on the streets.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
May the Santo Niño continue to bless the Philippines and may he sustain the Christians of this great nation in their vocation to be witnesses and missionaries of the joy of the Gospel, in Asia and in the whole world.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The Gospel, radiant with the glory of Christ’s cross, constantly invites us to rejoice.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Sometimes we are tempted to be that kind of Christian who keeps the Lord’s wounds at arm’s length. Yet Jesus wants us to touch human misery, to touch the suffering flesh of others. He hopes that we will stop looking for those personal or communal niches which shelter us from the maelstrom of human misfortune and instead enter into the reality of other people’s lives and know the power of tenderness. Whenever we do so, our lives become wonderfully complicated and we experience intensely what it is to be a people, More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All revealed truths derive from the same divine source and are to be believed with the same faith, yet some of them are more important for giving direct expression to the heart of the Gospel. In this basic core, what shines forth is the beauty of the saving love of God made manifest in Jesus Christ who died and rose from the dead.More Pope Francis [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
