(Romereports.com) (-ONLY VIDEO-) During
Wednesday's general audience, the Pope continued his catechesis on the
Year of Faith by addressing a key question: How should Christians talk about God to their fellow friends and family?
SEE FULL CATEQUESIS IN ENGLISH:
Brothers and Sisters, In our continuing catechesis for the Year of
Faith, we now consider the question of how we are to speak about God to
our contemporaries, communicating the Christian faith as a response to
the deepest longings of the human heart. This means bringing the God of
Jesus Christ to the men and women of our time.
means bearing quiet and humble witness each day to the core of the
Gospel message. This is the Good News of the God who is Love, who has
drawn near to us in Jesus Christ even to the Cross, and who in the
Resurrection brings us the hope and promise of eternal life. Jesus gave
us an example: by his loving concern for people’s questions, struggles
and needs, he led them to the Father.
the task of bringing God to our contemporaries, families play a
privileged role, for in them the life of faith is lived daily in joy,
dialogue, forgiveness and love. The God of Jesus Christ has revealed
our grandeur as persons redeemed by love and called, in the Church, to
renew the city of man, so that it can become the city of God.
I offer a cordial welcome to
the members and associates of the Catholic Medical Missionary Board,
with gratitude for their charitable concern for the health care needs of
our brothers and sisters in developing countries. Upon all the
English-speaking pilgrims present at today’s Audience, including the
groups from Nigeria, Korea and the United States of America, I invoke
God’s blessings of joy and peace.”
