During his weekly catechesis, Pope Francis spoke of the Holy Spirit as “composer” of a “symphony of prayer” that has been given to the Church: the Psalms. He said the Psalms “have been the prayer of Jesus, Mary and the Apostles and of all Christians who have preceded us.”

SUMMARY OF POPE FRANCIS' CATECHESIS IN ENGLISH:

Today we continue our catechesis on the Holy Spirit, who teaches the Church, as the Bride of Christ, how to pray. For our symphony of prayer in preparation for the upcoming Jubilee, we turn to the poetry of the Psalms, just as that great “orchestra”, the communion of saints, has done since the Church’s earliest days. The Psalms express every movement of this symphony and echo every sentiment of our hearts in words that often convey wonder, grief, and hope. The more frequently we repeat these inspired prayers, the stronger and more effective they become.

May the Holy Spirit enrich our prayer with this gift, and in so doing, empower us to give voice to all creation, involving it in our praise.

I extend a cordial welcome to the English-speaking pilgrims and visitors taking part in today’s Audience, especially the groups from Australia, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Taiwan, Tanzania, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and Vietnam. I invoke upon you and your families the joy and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ. God bless you!
