Pope's Angelus: Faith moves mountains. The most powerful examples of faith are around us

2013-10-07

Pope Francis began Sunday's Angelus by talking about his recent visit to Assisi. He described the visit as a gift and he also thanked the town for its warm welcome.    


POPE FRANCIS
"To think that this trip marked my first visit to Assisi. It was a great gift to carry out this pilgrimage on the feast day of St. Francis.” 

Reflecting on Sunday's Gospel, the Pope explained that having faith, even if it's as small as a mustard seed, can move mountains. He asked Christians to pray so that their faith may grow. He then added that often times, the most powerful examples of faith are present in every day life. 

POPE FRANCIS 
"I think about mothers and fathers who face difficult situations or even sick people, some of them gravely ill, who convey serenity to those who visit them. These people, precisely because of their faith, don't boast their actions.” 

The Pope also prayed for the hundreds of immigrants who died last week near the Italian island of Lampedusa. Roughly 200 people died when their boat capsized. Hundreds more are still missing. 

POPE FRANCIS 
"I also want to remember, with all of you here, the people who lost their lives last Thursday. Let us all pray in silence for our brothers and sisters.” 

Since October marks the month of missionaries, the Pope thanked them for their work and above all else for their faith.
