2016-04-06

(ONLY VIDEO) During the general audience, the Pope explained why Christ took mercy "to its fullest.”

He said that His whole life, He put himself "in the line of sinners,” alongside them, in order to show his compassion for the human condition. Therefore, he stressed, that one should not fear feeling like a sinner. He said to ask for forgiveness because we always have the certainty of God's forgiveness.

SUMMARY OF THE POPE IN SPANISH CATEQUESIS

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

After reflecting on the mercy of God in the Old Testament, we begin to meditate now as the Lord has brought it to its fullness. The whole Gospel is a sample of this pure, free and absolute love that reaches climax with the sacrifice of the Cross.

Jesus begins his mission by putting himself in the line of sinners, to receive the baptism of John, thus showing His compassion and solidarity with the human condition. In the synagogue of Nazareth, He affirms everything that this initial program will fulfill, bringing comfort, health and forgiveness to those who came to Him.

In Jordan, none could understand this gesture, only the Father, who declared: "This is my Son, the beloved, my beloved,” confirming the anointing of the Spirit with the path that the Lord has taken.

In the Cross we contemplate this great mystery of love. In it, the innocent dying for the guilty and, from it, begs the Father's forgiveness for all, without excluding anyone. So we should not fear to recognize ourselves as sinners, because He has taken our sin upon His cross. When we confess, we are certain of His forgiveness.

I cordially greet the Spanish-speaking pilgrims, especially the groups from Spain and Latin America. Let us approach the sacrament of reconciliation that renews the power of forgiveness that comes from the cross, and renew in us the grace of divine mercy that makes us able to love and forgive as the Lord taught us.
