Pope in Santa Marta: Christian life is a daily
struggle against temptations
EXTRACTS FROM PAPAL HOMILY
"Was this crowd going to see Jesus? Yes! Did they have needs? Yes!
were curious, but these were the skeptics, the minority ... But
was attracted by the Father: it was the Father who attracted people
Jesus. To the point that Jesus did not remain indifferent. Was He
static teacher who spoke His words and then washed His hands? No!
crowd touched the heart of Jesus. The same Gospel tells us: 'Jesus
moved because he saw these people as sheep without a shepherd.' And
Father, through the Holy Spirit, drew people to Jesus. "
"This is the truth; this is the reality that each of us feels when
Jesus. The unclean spirits try to prevent it, waging war against
Father, I'm very Catholic; I always go to Mass... but I never,
these temptations. Thank God, no!' 'Pray, because you're on the
path!' A Christian life without temptation is not a Christian: he
ideological, he is Gnostic, but he is not Christian. When the
people to Jesus, there is another who is attracting on the contrary
wages war! This is why Paul speaks of the Christian life as a
struggle everyday. A fight!"
"Let's think about our heart: Do I feel this struggle in my heart?
comfort and service to others, between other fun things or praying
worshiping the Father. Do I feel the struggle between one thing
another? The desire to do good or something that stops me; do I
self-discipline? I believe that my life moves the heart of Jesus?
If I do not
believe this, I have to pray a lot to believe it, to receive this
grace. Each of
us look in our heart to see the situation there. We ask the Lord to
Christians who are able to discern what happens in our own heart
choose the right path on which the Father draws us to Jesus."
"He came to destroy its influence in our hearts. So while the
attracting you to Jesus, the spirit of evil is seeking to destroy
attraction. May the Lord give us the grace to know how to discern
going on in our hearts and to choose the right path upon which the
draws us to Jesus.”
