Pope at Angelus: Living with the Gospel in everyday life is the best way to meet Jesus

2016-01-04

During his Sunday Angelus prayer, Pope Francis invited Christians to open the doors of their hearts to Jesus Christ. He later explained how to achieve it.

POPE FRANCIS
"Drawing near to the Gospel, meditating on it and incarnating it in daily life is the best way to understand Jesus and bring Him to others”.  

The Pope recalled the passage from the Gospel of John that explains that "the Word became flesh and his not welcomed .” He said that mankind closes the door to God and choose to live in the darkness.

POPE FRANCIS
"The Word is the light, and yet men have preferred the darkness; the Word came unto His own, but they did not receive Him; they closed the door in the face of the Son of God."


So he asked Christians to be alert to the mystery of evil that threatens them daily. 

Before saying goodbye to the thousands of pilgrims gathered in St. Peter's Square, he returned to make one of his most popular remarks. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Keeping a little Gospel in your pocket or purse will do you good. Never forget: Let's read a passage from the Gospel each day.”

He also called on Christians not to forget to build and achieve peace, as the motto of the World Day of Peace this year, "Overcome Indifference and Win Peace”.
