ANGELUS. In my land we say: “A good face in bad weather”. I greet the refugees and migrants present in the Square around the monument entitled “Angels, unawares” (cf. This is why it is important to accustom oneself to listening to the Word of God, to reading it. Lastly — the fourth possibility — we may receive it like good soil. L’Angelus è una preghiera recitata in ricordo del Mistero perenne dell’Incarnazione tre volte al giorno: alle 6 della mattina, a mezzogiorno e alla sera verso le 18, momento nel quale viene suonata la campana dell’Angelus. Conversion is a grace we must always ask for: “Lord, give me the grace to improve. The Word is given to each one of us. Mt 22:34-40), a doctor of the Law asks Jesus “which is the great commandment” (v. 36), that is, the principal commandment of all divine Law. With this “good face” I say Good Morning to you. Thank you for what you have done, and for what you are doing. Jesus does not indicate publicans and prostitutes as models of life, but as “privileged by Grace”. Mt 13:1-23), Jesus tells a great crowd the Parable — that we all know well — of the Sower, who casts seeds over four different types of terrain. In today’s Gospel passage (cf. The pandemic has harshly struck this sector that is so important to many countries. I offer my encouragement to those who work in tourism, particularly small family businesses and young people. Today is also World Tourism Day. In this way, at the first difficulty, such as a discomfort or disturbance in life, that still-feeble faith dissolves, as the seed that falls among the rocks withers. Let us pray together in silence for peace in the Caucasus. Thank you! 21:28-32). Obedience does not consist in saying “yes” or “no”, but always in taking action, in cultivating the vineyard, in bringing about the Kingdom of God, in doing good. And I wish you all a happy Sunday, a peaceful Sunday. It reminds us that the Word of God is a seed which in itself is fruitful and effective; and God scatters it everywhere, paying no mind to waste. Lk 15:7). Saint Matthew, who was a publican, a traitor to his homeland. Do I resemble the path, the rocky ground, the bramble bush? I pray for peace in the Caucasus and I ask the parties in conflict to perform concrete acts of good will and brotherhood that may lead to resolve the problems, not with the use of force and arms, but through dialogue and negotiation. And at times it is a painful process, because there is no path of holiness without some sacrifice and without a spiritual battle. Thinking about God’s patience is wonderful! After the Angelus the Holy Father continued: Dear brothers and sisters, there has been worrying news of conflicts in the area of the Caucasus. Today the Church celebrates the World Day of Migrants and Refugees. After the Angelus the Holy Father continued: Dear brothers and sisters, there has been worrying news of conflicts in the area of the Caucasus. In today’s Gospel, the one who makes the best impression is the first brother, not because he said “no” to his father, but because after his “no” he converted to “yes”, he repented. Here, and here alone does the seed take root and bear fruit. To the father’s invitation to go and work in the vineyard, the first son impulsively responds “no, I’m not going”, but then he repents and goes; instead the second son, who immediately replies “yes, yes dad”, does not actually do so; he doesn’t go. Let us give thanks to God for this new Blessed, an example of contemplation of the mystery of Calvary and tireless in the exercise of charity. I extend warm greetings to all those who work at sea, especially those who are far from their loved ones and their country. Indeed, these people, listening to his preaching, repented and changed their lives. Heb 13:2), which I blessed one year ago. Battling for good; battling so as not to fall into temptation; doing for our part what we can, to arrive at living in the peace and joy of the Beatitudes. This affirmation must not lead us to think that those who do not follow God’s commandments, those who do not follow morality, saying, “In any case, those who go to Church are worse than us”, do well. Enjoy your lunch. May the Virgin Mary, perfect model of good and fertile soil, help us, with her prayer, to become willing soil without thorns or rocks, so that we may bear good fruit for ourselves and for our brothers and sisters. Mt 13:1-23), Jesus tells a great crowd the Parable — that we all know well — of the Sower, who casts seeds over four different types of terrain. But this, even the smallest concrete commitment, cannot be made without grace. Often one is distracted by too many interests, by too many enticements, and it is difficult to distinguish, among the many voices and many words, that of the Lord, the only one that makes us free. No, this is not Jesus’ teaching. May Mary Most Holy help us to be docile to the action of the Holy Spirit. Faith in God asks us to renew every day the choice of good over evil, the choice of the truth rather than lies, the choice of love for our neighbour over selfishness. Today’s Gospel passage calls into question the way of living a Christian life, which is not made up of dreams and beautiful aspirations, but of concrete commitments, in order to always open ourselves to God’s will and to love for our brothers and sisters. Dear Brothers and Sisters, Good morning! How the Lord always waits for us; he is always beside us to help us; but he respects our freedom. Please, do not forget to pray for me. After praying the Angelus, the Holy Father continued: Dear brothers and sisters, the International Day of the Sea falls on this second Sunday in July. May the Lord sustain your commitment! “Like Jesus, forced to flee”, likewise the displaced, migrants. The exponents of this “façade” of religiosity, of which Jesus disapproves, in that time were “the chief priests and the elders of the people” (Mt 21:23), who, according to the Lord’s admonition, will be preceded in the Kingdom of God by “tax collectors and prostitutes” (cf. If we want, with the grace of God, we can become good soil, ploughed and carefully cultivated, to help ripen the seed of the Word. Each one of us is ground on which the seed of the Word falls; no one is excluded! God is patient with each of us: he does not tire, he does not desist after our “no”; he leaves us free even to distance ourselves from him and to make mistakes. Enjoy your lunch. ANGELUS. The name comes from the Latin word for Angel and the prayer itself reminds us of how Jesus Christ assumed our human nature through the Mystery of the Incarnation. Our remembrance and our prayer go to them, in a particular way, and to those who assist them. I greet with gratitude the representatives of the Pastoral Ministry for Health from the Diocese of Rome, thinking of the many priests, women and men religious and lay people who have been, and remain, beside the sick, in this time of pandemic. And I greet the pilgrims from Siena who have come to Rome on foot. A grace that God offers to anyone who opens up and converts to him. He also demonstrates this with the parable of the two sons, which is offered to us in the Gospel of Matthew (cf. He is the One who melts the hardness of hearts and disposes them to repentance, so we may obtain the life and salvation promised by Jesus. And I return once more to that advice: always keep a handy copy of the Gospel with you, a pocket edition of the Gospel, in your pocket, in your purse … and then, read a short passage every day, so that you become used to reading the Word of God, understanding well the seed that God offers you, and thinking with what soil do I receive it. This would be distraction, a great danger of our time. I hope that everyone may soon pick themselves up again from the current difficulties. Jesus tells them: “the tax collectors, meaning the sinners, and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you”. But conversion, changing the heart, is a process, a process that purifies us from moral encrustations. Saint Peter's Square Sunday, 25 October 2020 . And I would like to underscore this word, “grace”. v. 31). Beset by lots of small talk, by many ideologies, by continuous opportunities for distraction inside and outside the home, we can lose our zest for silence, for reflection, for dialogue with the Lord, to the point that we risk losing our faith, not receiving the Word of God, as we are seeing everything, distracted by everything, by worldly things. I think of Hagia Sophia, and I am very saddened. Grace. Those who convert to this choice, after having experienced sin, will find the first places in the Kingdom of heaven, where there is greater joy for a single sinner who repents than for ninety-nine righteous people (cf. And I now greet you, dear faithful of Rome and pilgrims from various parts of Italy and the world. There are several different ways to receive the Word of God. And the sea carries me a little farther away in my thoughts: to Istanbul. There the seeds spring up quickly, but they also soon wither away, because they are unable to sink roots to any depth. I greet all those who gathered this morning at the port of Civitavecchia-Tarquinia for the Eucharistic Celebration. Saint Peter's SquareSunday, 27 September 2020. Saint Peter's Square Sunday, 12 July 2020 . We can ask ourselves: what type of terrain am I? I greet all of you, the faithful from Rome and pilgrims from various countries, in particular, the families from the Focolari Movement. I offer a special thought to women and to all the people committed in the fight against breast cancer. This year I wished to dedicate my Message to the internally displaced, who are forced to flee, as also happened to Jesus and his family. With his preaching on the Kingdom of God, Jesus opposes a religiosity that does not involve human life, that does not question the conscience and its responsibility in the face of good and evil. Dear Brothers and Sisters, Good morning! Embracing the Word of God therefore, means embracing the personage of Christ; of Christ himself. With this simple example, Jesus wants to go beyond a religion understood only as an external and habitual practice, which does not affect people’s lives and attitudes, a superficial religiosity, merely “ritual”, in the ugly sense of the word. I wish everyone a happy Sunday, Please do not forget to pray for me. We can also — a third possibility that Jesus mentions in the parable — receive the Word of God like ground where thorny bushes grow. Yesterday in Naples, Maria Luigia of the Blessed Sacrament, in the world Maria Velotti, was proclaimed Blessed; she was the Foundress of the Congregation of Franciscan Sisters Adorers of the Holy Cross. I pray for peace in the Caucasus and I ask the parties in conflict to perform concrete acts of good will and brotherhood that may lead to resolve the problems, not with the use of force and arms, but through dialogue and negotiation. This Parable of the Sower is somewhat the ‘mother’ of all parables, because it speaks about listening to the Word. Because conversion is always a grace. And he anxiously awaits our “yes”, so as to welcome us anew in his fatherly arms and to fill us with his boundless mercy. Arrivederci. Let us think of Matthew, for example. The seed fallen upon this fertile soil represents those who hear the Word, embrace it, safeguard it in their heart and put it into practice in everyday life. Another possibility: we may receive the Word of God like rocky ground, with little soil. The Word of God, symbolized by the seeds, is not an abstract Word, but rather Christ himself, the Word of the Father who became flesh in Mary's womb. Such is the heart of God! We may do so like a path, where birds immediately come and eat the seeds. The Angelus is a special prayer recited by Catholics three times a day, at 6am, noon, and 6pm and is accompanied by the ringing of the Angelus bell. Cos'è l'Angelus. In this Sunday's Gospel passage (cf. Thank you! In this Sunday's Gospel passage (cf. Arrivederci. Give me the grace to be a good Christian”. There, the Word grows a little, but becomes choked, it is not strong, and it dies or does not bear fruit.
