Pope during Angelus: “Our pilgrimage goes from death towards life, a fuller life!”

2013-11-11

During his Sunday Angelus at St. Peter's Square, Pope Francis spoke about Resurrection and the afterlife. He said that eternity 'illuminates' and also 'gives hope to every man's life on earth.' 

POPE FRANCIS
"If we only look through human eyes, we tend to say that a man's path goes from life to death. That's what it looks like! But that is only if we look through our human eyes.  Jesus overturns this perspective and states that our pilgrimage goes from death towards life: a fuller life!”

Pope Francis also explained that even in this life, it was possible to experience some of the joys of Resurrection. 

POPE FRANCIS
"But already on this earth, in prayers, in the Sacraments, in fraternity we encounter Jesus and His love, and so we can get a small taste of the Risen life. The experience we have of His love and His faithfulness lights up like a fire in our hearts and increases our faith in the Resurrection.” 

After the prayer of the Angelus, he remembered all of those affected by the super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

POPE FRANCIS
"I wish to reassure my closeness to the people of the Philippines and those of the region hit by a terrible typhoon. Unfortunately, there are so many victims and such massive damage.”

The Pope asked everyone at St. Peter's Square to pray in silence for all of the victims of one of the strongest storms the country has faced. He also mentioned that it was the 75th anniversary of the so-called 'Night of Broken Glass', which marked the beginning of the Holocaust.
