Pope: Do you want to live your life like a burning lamp, or an extinguished one?

2014-02-10

It was bright and sunny on Sunday afternoon, as the Pope led the Angelus prayer in St. Peter's Square. It was a nice surprise for the thousands of people who came out to see the Pope. 

Reflecting on the day's Gospel, he talked about what it really means for Christians to be 'the salt of the earth and the light of the world.' The Pope compared it to a burning lamp that should always be left on. 

-Do you want to be burning lamps, or extinguished lamps? 

-On!

-I can't hear you up here? How? 

-On!

-Lights on! It's God who gives us this light and we can pass it on to others. A burning lamp! This is the Christian vocation

With the Winter Olympics going on in Sochi Russia, the Pope congratulated all those taking part. 

"I would also like to extend my greetings to all the organizers and all athletes, so that the Olympics reflect a festival of sport and friendship.” 

The 11th of February marks the World Day of the Sick, so the Pope asked all those who care for a loved one, to bit fear frailty or vulnerability. 

Towards the end, the Pope said his thoughts and prayers are with those who are suffering from the devastating effects of natural disasters.
