Overlooking St. Peter's Square, the Pope led Sunday's Angelus. He reflected on Sunday's Gospel, where Jesus reminds his Apostles that they need to be ready for the end of times.
The Pope explained that even though it's one of the most challenging Gospel readings, it sheds light on having hope even in tough times.
“Jesus tells us that although Heaven and Earth will pass away, his words will remain. Let us pledge ourselves to build our lives more and more on the solid foundation of his holy word, the true source of life and joy.”
Despite the challenges faced by the modern world, the Pope said that relativism is not a good option to overcome them.
“Even in our own time, there is no lack of natural calamities. Unfortunately, there are also plenty of wars and violence. We need a firm foundation for our life and our hope. Even more so now, with all the relativism we're engaged in.”
Towards the end, the Pope emphasized the timeless words of Jesus, where he says that everything passes, but his words remain.
