By Carol GlatzVATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Prayer is not a magic wand thatfulfills your desires, but it is what helps you keep the faith when you don'tunderstand God's will, Pope Francis said.Prayer is meant to be "our daily bread, our powerfulweapon and the staff for our journey," he said May 25 during his weeklygeneral audience in St. Peter's Square.In his catechesis, the pope talked about the Gospelparable of the persistent widow, who incessantly appealed to a corrupt judgefor justice.Judges at the time were supposed to be filled with thefear of God as they impartially and faithfully upheld the laws of Moses, thepope said. But the judge in this parable was dishonest and only cared abouthimself. He had no interest in protecting the rights of the weakest and easilyexploited members of society, which included widows, orphans and foreigners, hesaid."Faced with the judge's indifference, the widowresorted to her only weapon -- to keep incessantly pestering him, presentinghim with her appeal ...
Vatican City, May 25, 2016 / 06:56 am (CNA/EWTN News).- For Pope Francis, prayer is neither a “magic wand” used to get what we want nor something casual we do only when we feel like it, but is rather the strength that sustains our faith in difficult moments.“Jesus says that we need ‘to pray always, without growing tired,’” the Pope said May 25. What that means is that “it’s not just praying sometimes, when I feel like it. No.”“Everyone experiences moments of fatigue and discouragement, especially when it seems like our prayer seems ineffective,” he said, but assured that “God answers his children promptly, even if it means he does it in times and ways other than what we would like.”Francis spoke to pilgrims gathered in a sunny St. Peter’s Square for his Wednesday general audience. He continued his catechesis on mercy as understood in scripture, focusing on the parable of the unjust judge from the Gos...
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis sent a video message on Wednesday to participants in the 100th Katholikentag, or Catholic Day, taking place in Leipzig, Germany, from May 25th to 29th. First organised in 1848, this popular festival brings together Catholics, as well as people of other religious traditions, in dialogue with political, cultural and business leaders.Philippa Hitchen reports:  Speaking in German, a language he learnt during his student days, Pope Francis greeted participants and praised the good relations between Christians of different denominations in Germany.Noting the title of this 100th Katholikentag, ‘Ecce homo’, or ‘Behold, the man’, the Pope said this theme shows us that it’s not exterior success that counts in life, but rather the ability to stop, to look and to be attentive to the needs of others.Peace with CreationEvery person, the Pope said, wishes to live in peace with others, but this will only happen if we foster peace in ...
