Pope Francis asks families to read the Bible

2014-10-06

Following the Opening Mass for the Synod, Pope Francis prayed the Angelus along with thousands of pilgrims in St. Peter's Square.

Pope Francis reminded them about the start of the Synod on the Family and recalled the imagery of the vineyard to talk about God's people, and specifically, the family.

POPE FRANCIS
"Taking care of the family is a way to work on the Lord's vineyard so it can produce the fruit of the Kingdom of God”.

In order for families to move forward, Pope Francis recommended that they read the Word of God. Pauline Publishing gave a Bible to every person at the square to commemorate their founding. Pope Francis called on families to use them.

POPE FRANCIS
"It is not for putting in a shelf, but rather for having it at hand. It is for reading it often, every day, either individually or in groups, husband and wife, parents and children; maybe at night, especially on Sundays. That way, the family can move forward with the light and the power of the Word of God!”

Before leaving, Pope Francis asked the pilgrims not to forget to pray in the upcoming days for the Synod on the Family.
