Pope: Remember why we exist and what we fight for
Speaking during the liturgical feast of Holy Trinity Sunday, Pope Francis said that the day was a call to welcome the beauty of the Gospel and to live for one another.
"We are not called to live without the other, above or against the other, but with the other, for the other and in the other.â?
The Pope delivered a rousing call to action for Christians around the world, and his words were specifically inspired by the feast day.
"So letâ??s pitch our lives high, remembering for which glory we exist, we work, we fight, we suffer; and in which immense prize we are called to participate in.â?
It's well known that Pope Francis has a special devotion to Mary. He said that she understands the mystery of the Holy Trinity better than anyone, and that she can be an inspiration to us all.
"In this last day of the month of May, the month of Mary, we entrust ourselves to the Virgin Mary. She, more than any other creature has known, adored, and loved the mystery of the Holy Trinity, lead us by hand, helped us to grasp in the world events the signs of the presence of God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.â?
Approximately 50,000 pilgrims came to St. Peter's Square to hear Pope Francis speak. He greeted pilgrims from throughout the world and reminded them that the traditional Corpus Christi procession would be taking place this Thursday. He closed with a request many have come to expect from Pope Francis: The Pope asked people to pray for him.
