Pope Francis at Casa Santa Marta: The Lord never disappoints

2015-05-05

In his homily during Tuesday morning Mass, Pope Francis focused on three words: tribulations, trust, and peace. He said that difficult times will always be part of life.

POPE FRANCIS
"Three words: tribulations, trust and peace. In life, we have to go on the path of tribulation but it is the law of life. But in those moments, rely on the Lord and He will answer with peace. This Lord, who is Father, loves us so much and never disappoints.”

Christians should not have a sadomasochistic attitude in the face of pain, the Pope said. Rather, they should trust God with confidence and hope.

SUMMARY OF POPE'S HOMILY
(Source: Vatican Radio) 

"'To bear': is more than being patient; it means to carry on one’s shoulders, to carry the weight of tribulation. And Christian life also has moments like that. But Jesus tells us: 'Have courage in that moment. I have overcome; you too will be victorious'. This first word enlightens us to go forward in the most difficult moments of life, those moments that make us suffer."

"To entrust something to the Lord, to entrust this difficult moment to the Lord, to entrust myself to the Lord, to entrust to the Lord our faithful, we priests, bishops, entrust to the Lord our families, our friends and say to the Lord: 'Take care of them; they are yours.' This is a prayer that we do not always say: the prayer of entrustment: 'Lord I entrust this to you; You help take care of it.’ It is a beautiful Christian prayer. It is 'the attitude of trust in the power of the Lord, and in the tenderness of God who is Father. "

"Three words: tribulations, trust and peace. In life we have to go down streets of tribulation but this is the law of life. But in those moments, [we must] rely on the Lord and He answers us with peace. This Lord who is Father loves us so much and never disappoints. Now we continue the Eucharistic celebration with the Lord, praying that He strengthen our faith and our hope, asking Him to give us the confidence to overcome our trials because He has overcome the world, and gives us all his peace.
