Pope Francis Encourages Finding Time for God in Our Lives

Pope Francis delivered a message reminding people that God proposes rather than imposes.

He expressed concern that many are consumed by their own concerns and shared the antidote to this indifference, which is an invitation from Jesus to dedicate time to God.

Liberation through Dedication to God

The Pope emphasized that dedicating time to God is a source of liberation that lightens and heals our hearts, rescuing us from the clutches of evil, loneliness, and the loss of meaning in our lives.

He underscored the importance of making space for the Lord in various aspects of life.

The Importance of Being with the Lord

Pope Francis encouraged individuals to be with the Lord through participation in Mass, listening to the Word, prayer, and acts of charity.

He highlighted the presence of the Lord in those who are weak, poor, lonely, and in need of attention and consolation.

The Challenge of Perceived Time Waste

The Pope acknowledged that some may view these acts of compassion and dedication as a “waste of time” and retreat into their private worlds, expressing sadness over this disposition.

Addressing the Israel-Hamas Conflict

Following the Angelus, Pope Francis briefly touched on the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas, suggesting that the conflict remains on the global stage as a matter of concern and discussion.
