Pope's Angelus: Jesus was not afraid of the prejudices of His time, and talked to a woman

2014-03-24

Thousands of pilgrims came to St. Peter's Square on Sunday despite the heavy rain to listen to the Pope's Angelus.

Pope Francis talked about the episode when Jesus meets the Samaritan woman. For the Pope, Jesus didn't pay attention to the "hostility that existed between Jews and Samaritans, crushing the prejudice that existed in relating to women.”

POPE FRANCIS
"The disciples were amazed that their Master talked to that woman. But the Lord is greater than prejudices, and that's why He was not afraid to stop by and talk to the Samaritan woman. Mercy is greater than any prejudice.”

The Pope added that Lent is the moment for self-examination, and so he asked Christians to set prejudices aside and listen always to the voice of Jesus, that fills the heart with joy.

POPE FRANCIS
"Give testimony of the joy that meeting Jesus brings, because I said that every meeting with Jesus is life changing, and also fills us with joy, that joy that comes from the inside. That's how the Lord is.”

Before wishing all pilgrims a happy Sunday, he asked them to pray for people suffering from tuberculosis, marking the World Day of that sickness.

Pope Francis also reminded pilgrims that next Friday March 28th will be the event "24 hours for the Lord,” in which some parishes of Rome will host a night of Eucharistic prayer and confessions.
