Pope stops popemobile and chats with a friend in the Square

2014-04-09

For about 25 minutes, Pope Francis made several rounds along St. Peter's Square to greet all the people in his general audience.

 

 

 

 

In fact, the Pope recognized an old friend. He stopped the popemobile, waited for him to jump the fence and had a quick chat with him in Spanish, while his team waited.

 

 

 

 

Afterward, once the friend got off, he continued his rounds on the popemobile, and he even told this to a pilgrim.

 

 



"Francis, you're one of a kind”

 

 

 

 

POPE FRANCIS
"So are you. There's no other person like you.”



The Pope began his catechesis on the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He explained the difference between wisdom and knowledge. Between seeing things through the eyes of mankind, and seeing it through the eyes of God.

 

 

 

 

POPE FRANCIS
"Sometimes we value things depending on our pleasure or depending on the mood of our hearts, with love or even with hate, or envy. No! This is not seeing things through the eyes of God.”

 

 

 

 

He said the gifts of the Holy Spirit come through prayer, closeness and communion with God. The Pope explained that being open to the wisdom of the Holy Spirit, can change lives.

 

 

 


POPE FRANCIS
"This wisdom teaches us to see things through the eyes of God. To feel things through the heart of God. To speak with the Word of God. So, it's through this wisdom that we move forward, building a family and building our Church.”
 


In light of the recent murder of a 75 year old missionary priest in Syria, the Pope prayed for father Frans van der Lugt and all the civilians who are suffering the pains of that war.

 

 

 

 

POPE FRANCIS
"I think of those who've been kidnapped, Christians, Muslims, Syrians and from other countries. Among them, bishops and priests.”

 

 

 

 

There were roughly 45,000 people out in the Square on Wednesday. Among them, front and center were a delegation representing Italian marines, who also got a greeting from the Pope.
