His Excellency Pope Francis!
Good Gracious Lord, give us a generous and spiritual listening to your calling us.
Have you ever come across his moving visions?
He warns the world, all people:
“Attachment to riches is the beginning of all kinds of Corruption everywhere!
In Kenya 2015; “The youths are desperate! Hopes, Dreams have been shuttered for their future.
Hence forth; If there be peace of the nation it begins from the very families.
“The health of the society always depends on the health of its families”.
On Ash Wednesday he said;
“We are subject to numerous temptations. Each of us knows the difficulties we have to face. And it is sad to note that, when faced with the ever-varying circumstances of our daily lives, there are voices raised that take advantage of pain and uncertainty; the only thing they aim to do is sow distrust. If the fruit of faith is charity – as Mother Teresa often used to say – then the fruit of distrust is apathy and resignation. Distrust, apathy and resignation: these are demons that deaden and paralyze the soul of a believing people.
Lent is the ideal time to unmask these and other temptations, to allow our hearts to beat once more in tune with the vibrant heart of Jesus. The whole of the Lenten season is imbued with this conviction, which we could say is echoed by three words offered to us in order to rekindle the heart of the believer: pause, see and return.
Pause a little, leave behind the unrest and commotion that fill the soul with bitter feelings which never get us anywhere. Pause from this compulsion to a fast-paced life that scatters, divides and ultimately destroys time with family, with friends, with children, with grandparents, and time as a gift… time with God.”
