The #WordOfGod plunges us into daily life and calls us to listen to the cry of the poor and heed the violence and injustice that wound our world. It challenges Christians not to be indifferent, but to be active, creative and prophetic.
Let us hear directed to us John’s cry of love to return to God. And let us not let this Advent go by like days on the calendar because this is a moment of grace for us, here and now! #GospelOFTheDay (Mt 3:1-12)
In the #GospeloftheDay (Mt 3:1-12), John the Baptist sayts, “Bear fruit in keeping with repentance!” This is a cry of love, like the cry of a father who sees his son ruining himself and says to him, “Don’t throw your life away!” #Advent
Today we want to remember every person with a #disability, especially those suffering because they are living in situations of war or whose disability was caused by combat. @LaityFamilyLife
We are all together called to develop a renewed society oriented towards freedom, justice and peace so as to overcome every kind of inequality and discrimination so that no one can make another person a slave.
Let us #PrayTogether that volunteer non-profit and human development organizations may find people willing to commit themselves to the common good and ceaselessly seek out new paths of international cooperation. #PrayerIntention #ClickToPray
On the Feast of the Apostle Andrew, I would like to express my affection to my dear brother Patriarch Bartholomew I and to the Church of Constantinople. May the intercession of the brothers, Saints Peter and Andrew, obtain full unity for the Church and peace for the entire world.
Before the day's end, let us learn how to read what has happened during that day in the book of our hearts -- not in newspapers, but in my heart. #Discernment
God conceals himself in the most ordinary situations of our lives. He does not come in extraordinary events, but in everyday things: our daily work, a chance encounter, someone in need... That's where the Lord is, who calls to us and inspires our actions. #Advent
Season of #Advent, let us be shaken out of our torpor to recognize God’s present in daily situations. If we are unaware of his coming today, we will also be unprepared when He arrives at the end of time. Let us remain vigilant!
Let us not tire of saying no to war, no to violence, yes to dialogue, yes to #peace: in particular for the martyred Ukrainian people. Yesterday we remembered the tragedy of the Holodomor.
Violence kills the future. I hope that the Israeli and Palestinian authorities will more readily take to heart the pursuit of dialogue, building mutual trust, without which there will never be a solution for #peace in the #HolyLand.
In the #GospelOfTheDay we hear a promise that introduces us to the Time of #Advent: “Your Lord is coming” (Mt 24:42). This is the foundation of our hope, it is what supports us even in the most difficult moments: God is coming. Let us never forget this!
During this #Advent Season, let us ask the Lord to help us keep the lamp of faith alit in our lives, to be prepared to receive him, and that he fill us with peace and joy.
Acts of violence and exploitation directed at women are not merely wrong. They are crimes that destroy the harmony, the harmony and beauty that God wished to bestow on the world.
The path to happiness is the one that Saint Paul described at the end of one of his letters: “Pray constantly, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit” (1 Thess 5:17-19). #Prayer #ThanksgivingDay
Let us #PrayTogether for #peace in the world, with a special thought for the people of Ukraine. This Saturday is the anniversary of the terrible #Holodomor genocide. Let us pray for the children, the women and the elderly, who are today suffering the martyrdom of the aggression.
I would like to send my greetings to the athletes, fans and spectators following the football #WorldCup taking place in Qatar. May this important event be an occasion for encounter, fostering fraternity and peace among peoples. #Qatar2022
In the past few hours, the island of #Java in Indonesia was hit by a strong #earthquake. I express my nearness to that dear population and I pray for the dead and the injured.
Spiritual consolation is an experience of interior joy that allows us to see God’s presence in everything. It strengthens faith, hope, and the ability of doing good; it helps us never give up in the face of difficulties because it gives us a peace that is stronger than any trial.
Each time we join our hands and open our hearts to God, we find ourselves in the company of anonymous saints and official saints who pray with us and intercede for us as older brothers and sisters who have preceded us on this same human adventure. #Prayer
Through prayerful silence and hidden sacrifice, contemplative monasteries maternally sustain the life of the Church. #ProOrantibus
“Mary arose and went with haste” (Lk 1:39) is the theme of this #WorldYouthDay. Aiming for the heights, getting on the move, leaving behind our own fears to take someone in need by the hand, is the secret to remaining young. #AriseandGo @LaityFamilyLife
Let us also pray for the families of the victims of the serious fire in a refugee camp in Gaza, in Palestine, where several children also died. May the Lord welcome into heaven those who lost their lives and console those people who have suffered years of conflict.
We are living a famine of peace in our time. Let’s think of how many places in the world are scourged by war, in particular of war-torn Ukraine. Let us roll up our sleeves and continue to pray for #peace!
Jesus, naked on the cross, removes every veil from God and destroys every false image of His kingship. Let us look upon Him to find the courage to make ourselves servants, so as to reign with Him. #ChristTheKing vatican.va/content/france…
In the #GospelOfTheDay (Lk 23:35-43), the good thief calls Jesus by name, he confesses his faults, he begs: "Jesus, remember me". In this way, a criminal becomes the first saint: he draws near to Jesus for an instant and the Lord keeps him forever at his side.
Christ is the unifying centre of all reality. He is the answer to all human questions. He is the fulfilment of every desire for happiness, goodness, love and eternity present in the human heart.
Where can we find the strength to put ourselves generously at the service of others? In prayer and in the silent contemplation of Christ. A prayerful encounter with Jesus fills our hearts with His peace and love which we can then give to others.
Let us not tire of doing everything possible for the dramatic urgency of climate change. Let us put concrete, far-sighted choices in act, thinking of the younger generations first, before it is too late! #COP27
Let us pray that the Lord might convert the hearts of those who are still directed toward war, and make the desire for peace prevail for tortured Ukraine, to avoid every escalation and to be open to the way of cease fire and dialogue. #GeneralAudience
The spiritual state we call desolation can be an opportunity of growth. It provokes a "shaking of the soul", fosters vigilance and humility, and protects us from the winds of fancy. #GeneralAudience
Goodness is hidden, silent; it requires slow and continuous excavation. Because God’s style is discreet. He does not impose himself. He is like the air we breathe - we don't see it but it allows us to live, and we realize it only when it's missing.
I would like to recall the #COP27 Summit on Climate Change, which is taking place in Egypt. I hope that steps forward will be made, with courage and determination, in the wake of the Paris Agreement.
On the first anniversary of the launch of the #LaudatoSi' Platform for Action, which promotes ecological conversion, I encourage this mission, crucial for the future of humanity, so that it may foster in everyone a genuine commitment to the care of creation.
Let us always remain close to our brothers and sisters in martyred Ukraine. Close in prayer and with concrete solidarity. Peace is possible! Let us not resign ourselves to war.
Let us not be content, like the people in the #GospelOfTheDay (Lk 21:5-19), to admire the beautiful stones of the temple, while failing to recognize God’s true temple, the human person, especially the poor, in whose face, in whose wounds, we encounter Jesus. #WorldDayOfThePoor
On this #WorldDayOfThePoor, God’s word is a forceful admonition to break through that inner deafness that prevents us from listening to the stifled cry of pain of the frailest. #GospelOfTheDay (Lk 21:5-19) vatican.va/content/france…
The poor guarantee us an eternal "income". They are already helping us to become rich in love. For the worst kind of poverty to combat is the poverty of our love.
A saint is a luminous reflection of the Lord of history. The path of holiness is universal. It is a call directed toward each of us that begins with Baptism and is unique and unrepeatable for each person.
Saints do not come from a “parallel universe”. They are believers rooted in their daily activities with their families, study, work; social, economic and political life. In all these settings, they fearlessly strive to carry out God’s will.
I renew my invitation to pray for war-torn #Ukraine. Let us ask the Lord for peace for these people who are suffering so much cruelty on the part of some mercenaries making war. Let us #PrayTogether
Each and every person is needed in order for the journey of fraternity and peace to progress. Let us all hear the call to expand our horizons to open our hearts because we are all brothers and sisters.
#Holiness is not a process of struggles and renunciations. It is above all the experience of being loved by God, of freely receiving his love, his mercy.
Let us read the lives of the saints which narrate in a comprehensible way the style God uses in the lives of people not that different from us since the saints were made of flesh and blood like us. Their deeds dialogue with our own actions, and help us understand what they mean.
The signing of the agreement regarding the situation in #Ethiopia is a source of hope. Let us support this commitment for a lasting #peace. And let us continue to pray for war-torn #Ukraine. May that war might come to an end.
Thank you for these days passed together. With a heart filled with gratitude I bless all of you, especially those who worked to prepare for this journey. I thank His Majesty the King, and the Authorities of #Bahrain for their exquisite hospitality. #ApostolicJourney
Prophecy makes us capable of putting the Beatitudes into practice in everyday situations, meekly, yet resolutely, building God’s kingdom in which love, justice and peace are opposed to every form of selfishness, violence and degradation.
La profecía nos hace capaces de practicar las Bienaventuranzas evangélicas en las situaciones de cada día, es decir, de edificar con firme mansedumbre ese Reino de Dios en el que el amor, la justicia y la paz se oponen a toda forma de egoísmo, de violencia y de degradación.
The Spirit is a wellspring of prophecy. We cannot pretend not to see the works of evil, so as to live a “quiet life” and not get our hands dirty. We have received a Spirit of prophecy to bear the light by proclaiming the Gospel by our living witness. #ApostolicJourney
