Pope to Families: Don't involve kids in adult drama

2015-06-24

As he usually does before starting his weekly general audience, Pope Francis made a few rounds in St. Peter's Square in the popemobile,  greeting the crowds and blessing children along the way

In his catechesis, the Pope talked about the troubles that often rise in marriage. Pain and misunderstandings that come from words, actions or omissions. 

POPE FRANCIS
"When wounds that are still repairable are ignored, they become even more aggravated. They turn into arrogant attitudes of hostility and contempt. At that point, they can become deep lacerations that can divide husband and wife.”

The Pope also talked about children. When spouses don't deal with their emotions, said the Pope, they often turn to anger and friction, which inevitably affects children

POPE FRANCIS
"When adults lose their heads. When they only think of themselves. When mom and dad hurt each other, the soul of children suffer. It triggers a sense of desperation. They become wounds that leave a mark for their entire lives.” 

The Pope also added that parents cannot buy their children's affection or compensate for their hurtful words with gifts. 

POPE FRANCIS
"When a man and woman are committed to being one flesh and having a family, but then they obsessively think of their own wants, freedoms and gratifications...this distortion deeply wounds the hearts of children.” 

With preparations underway for the Synod on the Family, in the month of October, the Pope also called for the Church to reflect on how it can better accompany those in so called 'irregular situations,' which often include divorced and re-married couples.
