Pope's Angelus: Loving God means loving our neighbors


"From God we learn to want only the good and never the bad. We learn to look at each other not only with our eyes, but with the eyes of God, which is the gaze of Jesus Christ.”

From early on, even children have an understanding of love, said the Pope. Just as parents love their children, despite their flaws, God too, loves His children.

 "The father and mother do not love their children only when they deserve love: they love them always, though of course, they make them understand when they are wrong.”

Visually, the Pope said God's love is reflected on the Cross. It's both vertical and horizontal, yet  it represents one, inseparable unit. That's exactly the message of the Passion of Jesus: loving both God and humanity go together.

"Jesus teaches us that those who love the Lord with all their heart, soul, mind and strength are not far from the Kingdom. Let us love in this way and our neighbor as ourselves.”

Towards the end, the Pope called on the Virgin Mary to intercede, so that all Christians can be a true witness of love, with both words and actions.
