During the Angelus, Pope Francis turned his attention
on Jesus’ teaching on prayer, from the day’s Gospel.
"The gift of the Holy Spirit helps us to live well, to live with wisdom and love, doing the will of God. "What a beautiful prayer it would be, if in the coming week, "each one of us would ask of the Father, "Father, give me the Holy Spirit.”
Pope Francis praised the gift of the Holy Spirit that guides Christians to the good will of God. But he said that everyone should ask for it.
"At this time our soul is once again shaken by sad news related to deplorable acts of terrorism and violence, which have caused pain and death. I think of the dramatic events of Munich in Germany and Kabul in Afghanistan, where they have killed many innocent people.”
The Pope remembered the many innocent victims who lost their lives in the horrible attacks in Germany and Afghanistan. A busy week awaits him as he prepares for his trip to Poland this Wednesday for the WYD.
