Pope Francis at General Audience: “We will all meet in Heaven”


It was a damp, cold morning in Rome. Many umbrellas and brightly colored ponchos could be seen as the popemobile circled around St. Peter's Square.

Before beginning his catechesis, the Pope gave an encouraging word to the pilgrims.

"It's kind of an ugly day, huh? But you are courageous. Congratulations!”

Pope Francis explained that the Church is on a path towards the Kingdom of Heaven, a seed that has been in the Earth. He also said that after death, Christians will come face to face with God. 

"It is beautiful to think of this, to think of Heaven. And we will all meet there. All of us, All of us...Up there...all of us.”

In the Church, the Pope continued, there exists a communion among living Christians and those who have passed away. He concluded that they help one another through prayer. 

During his greeting, Pope Francis reminded the pilgrims of his upcoming trip to Turkey.

"I invite all of you to pray so that this visit of Peter to his brother Andrew may bear fruits of peace, sincere dialogue among religions and harmony in the Turkish nation.”

The Pope also greeted Christians from the Middle East. He said that God transforms the world with his forgiveness.
