Public daily morning Mass, back on Pope's schedule

2014-09-01

Now that his summer vacation is officially over, Pope Francis resumed his daily morning Mass in Casa Santa Marta. In his homily, the Pope said the Gospel is more than something to read. He said, it's a way to find Jesus. 

POPE FRANCIS
"It would do us good today, during the day, to ask ourselves: 'How do I receive the Word of God? As something that's simply interesting? Some will say, Oh the priest preached about this today ... it was so interesting! How wise, this priest is!' Or do I receive the Word because I can find the living Jesus and His Word there?'”

The Pope then added that the Gospel is expressed through actions and humility and not just through words.

SUMMARY OF POPE'S HOMILY:

"Why, to learn? No! To find Jesus, because Jesus is right there in His Word, in His Gospel. Every time I read the Gospel, I find Jesus. Yet how do I receive this Word? Well, you should receive it like you receive Jesus, that is to say with an open heart, with a humble heart, with the spirit of the Beatitudes. Because that is how Jesus came, in humility. He came [to us] in poverty. He came with the anointing of the Holy Spirit".

"He is power- said the Pope - He is the Word of God because He is anointed by the Holy Spirit. We, too, if we want to hear and receive the Word of God, we must pray and ask the Holy Spirit for this anointing of the heart, which is the anointing of the Beatitudes. A heart like the heart of the Beatitudes".

"It would do us good today, during the day, to ask ourselves: 'How do I receive the Word of God? As something that interests me? Ah, the priest preached this today ... it was so interesting! How wise, this priest!'. Or so I receive it simply because it is the living Jesus, His Word? And am I capable – pay attention to this question! – am I capable of buying a small Gospel - cheap, eh? – Buying a small Gospel and carrying it in my pocket, in my bag and picking it up when I can, during the day, to read a passage, to find Jesus there? These two questions will do us good. May the Lord will help us".
