Home » » Happy Lent from Pope Francis
Today is Ash Wednesday for the Catholic Church. It begins Lent and Pope Francis send his message using WhatsApp. He said:
"Dear young people - the Pope said in his voice message - Jesus told his disciples, 'Be careful not to practice your righteousness before men to be seen by them' ... 'When you give alms do not sound a trumpet before to you '...' your Father who sees in secret will reward you '. the word of God gives us the proper orientation for living Lent well. "
"When we do something good, we are sometimes tempted to be appreciated and to have a reward: the human glory. But this is a false reward because it projected towards what others think of us. Jesus asks us to do good because it is good. He asks us to feel always under the gaze of our heavenly Father and to live in union with him, not in relation to the judgment of others, to live in the presence of the Father is a much deeper joy of glory worldly. Our attitude in this Lent is thus to live in secret where the Father sees us, he loves us, waiting for us. of course, external things are important, but we must always choose and live in the presence of God. "
"Let us in prayer, mortification, and in fraternal charity, we can humbly before God. So we will be worthy of the reward of God the Father. Happy Lent, Our Lady of Pompeii and accompany you, please pray for me" the Pope concluded.
