Pope: Pray as a Family! Keep the faith by sharing it

2013-10-28

October 28, 2013 (Romereports.com) Over 100,000 people from different parts of the world, came out to St. Peter's Square to take part in the 'Day for the Family.' As Pope Francis got ready to celebrate Mass, he took a quick glance at his watch to make sure he was on schedule


During his homily, the Pope connected prayer to humility, by explaining that humility comes from recognizing that one needs God

POPE FRANCIS
"All families need God. Every single one. We need His help, His strength, His blessing, His mercy and His forgiveness. It takes simplicity. To pray as a family, simplicity is needed."

The Mass falls under the events organized under the 'Year of Faith.' The Pope reflected on St. Paul, by explaining that part of keeping the faith, comes with sharing it. Even when families are pressed for time, he said,  prayer should not be ignored. 


POPE FRANCIS
"As a family, you can pray the 'Our Father' around the dinner table. That's not difficult to do, it's easy. Praying the rosary together, as a family is very beautiful and it gives strength. Also praying for one another: A husband for his wife and a wife for her husband. Parents praying for their children and children for their parents and grandparents. Praying for one another."

The Pope described Christian families as missionary families. He said transmitting the faith often comes with simply expressing joy in every day life

At the end of the Mass, the Pope prayed before an image of the Holy Family, asking for God to reawaken an awareness of the sacred and irreplaceable role of the family.
