Pope prays for passengers of missing Malaysian plane

2014-03-17

Reflecting on Sunday's Gospel, the Pope talked about the Transfiguration, where the Apostles are asked by God, to listen to Jesus. 

The Pope explained that this isn't just for the Apostles. Those who read the Gospel, he said, also listen to the Word of God. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Let me ask you a question. Do you read the Gospel every day? So yes, no, yes, no. So about half and half? Some do and some don't....well this is important.” 

The Pope then gave some practical tips to make this happen, asking all Christians to carry a Gospel prayer book with them on a daily basis. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Next Sunday you can tell me if you actually carried a small Gospel book with you in your pocket or your bag, and if you read a short Gospel passage throughout the day.”  

With the Malaysian plane still missing, the Pope prayed for the passengers and their families. 

POPE FRANCIS
"I invite all of you to pray for passengers of the Malaysian plane and their families. Let's be close to them during this difficult moment.” 

With thousands of people out in the Square, the Pope also greeted 'The community of John XXIII.' This year, the Italian association will carry out the Stations of the Cross, in honor of female victims of human trafficking.
