Pope in General Audience: Be humble enough to ask for help when you have doubts

2013-10-30

October 30, 2013 (Romereports.com) Pope Francis spoke about "insecurities” and of the "doubts of faith” people can experience throughout their life. He even said that he himself has had them. To face them, he said people must not close themselves off. The Pope added the faith of all Christians needs the support of everyone else during tough times.

POPE FRANCIS
"Who among us has not experienced insecurity, disorientation, and even doubt along the path of faith? We have all experienced this; I have too, it forms part of the path of faith, the path of our lives. None of this should surprise us, because we are human beings, marked by our frailty and limits.”

The Pope added that a way to get through these doubts is to be humble enough to ask for help.

POPE FRANCIS
"We are all fragile, we all have limits. Do not be afraid. We all have them. Even in these difficult moments, it is necessary to trust in the help of God, through filial prayer and, at the same time, it is important to find the courage and the humility to open ourselves to others.”

The Pope also explained that Baptism is a union between Christians that it's so strong, it continues into death. And as the Catholic Church prepares to honor those who passed away, the Pope said that despite death, all Christians that have passed away continue praying for those alive.

More than 50,000 pilgrims were at St. Peter's Square for the audience. The joyous atmosphere was evident, especially with this group of French children. One of them asked the Pope for an autograph. When he received it, his reaction said it all.
