POPE FRANCIS’ ANGELUS ADDRESS: On Loving Our Enemies

POPE FRANCIS’ ANGELUS ADDRESS: On Loving Our Enemies

“Love Your Enemies and Pray for Those Who Persecute You”

Angelus 30 August 2015

Here is a ZENIT translation of the address Pope Francis gave today before and after praying the midday Angelus with those gathered in St. Peter’s Square.

Before the Angelus

Dear Brothers and Sisters, good morning!

In this Sunday’s Gospel (Matthew 5:38-48) – one of those pages that expresses best the Christian “revolution” – Jesus shows the way of true justice through the law of love, which surmounts that of retaliation, namely, “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.” This ancient rule imposed inflicting on transgressors punishments equivalent to the damages caused: death to one who killed, amputation to one who wounded someone, and so on. Jesus does not ask His disciples to suffer evil, rather, He asks them to react, but not with another evil, but with goodness. Only thus is the chain of evil broken: an evil leads to another evil, another evil leads to another evil …  This chain of evil is broken, and things truly change. Evil in fact is a “void,” a void of goodness, and it cannot be filled with another void, but only with “fullness,” namely, with goodness. Reprisals never lead to the resolution of conflicts. “You did it to me, I’ll do it to you”: this never resolves a conflict, nor is it Christian.

February 17, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – On Thursday, Raymond Arroyo, canon lawyer Father Gerald Murray, and The Catholic Thing‘s Robert Royal presented a somber analysis of the confusion caused by Amoris Laetitia.

Arroyo featured Murray and Royal as guests on his EWTN show The World Over, where the three discussed the “odd” move of the pope’s nine advisors pledging their allegiance to him this week.

“This highly unusual vote of confidence comes at a serious time, a time of tension at the Vatican as major concerns are being raised about the direction of papal teaching and curial reform,” said Arroyo. “I’ve never seen anything like this sort of a pledge of confidence. I mean, Parliament’s done this in England, but I’ve never seen it done at the Vatican.”
