Pope Francis: “A world where women are marginalized is a sterile world”

2015-03-09

Pope Francis said that International Women's Day was an opportunity "to repeat the importance of women, and the necessity of their presence in life.” The remarks came during his weekly Angelus prayer at St. Peter's Square.

POPE FRANCIS
"A world where women are marginalized is a sterile world, because women don’t just bear life but transmit to us the ability to see otherwise, they see things differently.

He offered a special blessing for the thousands of women who were at St. Peter's Square and for women throughout the world.

POPE FRANCIS
"They transmit to us the ability to understand the world with different eyes, to understand things with hearts that are more creative, more patient, more tender.”

Aside from his remarks about women, Pope Francis also discussed the Gospel passage in which Jesus drove merchants from the temple. He said it was particularly relevant during this time of reflection.

POPE FRANCIS
"Let us travel in the world as Jesus did, and let us make our whole existence a sign of our love for our brothers, especially the weakest and poorest, let us build for God a temple of our lives.”

The Pope said that Lent presented an opportunity for people to open themselves up so that Jesus could cleanse them in the same way he cleansed the temple.
