Pope: Parish Cells, instruments of mission and proclamation
The Pope meets with groups, spread throughout the world, and encourages them: "A key part of evangelization is acceptance, because it is one of the first signs of communion that we are called to witness from having encountered Christ in our lives ". The Eucharist is "the heart of this mission."
Vatican City (AsiaNews) -  Parish Cells of Evangelization "are like a seed by which the parish community questions itself about its call to mission, and this is why you have the irresistible call to meet all to proclaim the beauty of the Gospel" ....

Most of the world’s almost 53 million refugees come from Asia and are sheltered in the Middle East
As a result of war (in Syria and Iraq), the Middle East is home to a third of the world’s 52.9 million refugees, especially in Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq, and Jordan. For UN High Commissioner for refugees, Europe should take at least 200,000 asylum seekers.

Pope: The peace of Christ and the disease of gossip, which is terrorism
During his homily in Santa Marta, Francis returns to speak of those who sow discord through gossip: "Christians are called to live like Jesus and bring peace, not division. We have to grow in this, we must convert, never a word spoken that divides, never, never a word that brings war, small wars, never gossip. "The exercise "biting ones’ tongue".

Aylan’s death and that of the Middle East
by Bernardo Cervellera
The death of a child from a sinking boat off the Turkish coast has moved the whole world, but lest we forget, thousands more have already died in Syria’s war. The refugee problem must be addressed but so must the causes that have led to this tragedy, namely Mideast wars, funding the Islamic State group, and proxies acting on behalf of regional and world powers.

Pope: Wonder of encountering Jesus opens hearts, calculations close them
At Mass in Santa Marta Francis speaks of the Gospel of the miraculous catch and invites participants to recognize themselves as sinners "not in theory, in practice" and to recognize the Savior. The Lord "forgives even those who deny him, if they have the grace of this double confession: You are God, I am a sinner."

Pope: Never again war, the plea of minorities and persecuted Christians
On the anniversary of the end of the Second World War, Francis asks that “the world today no longer experience the horrors and the appalling suffering of such tragedies. But she does!”. "The alliance between families and God, called today to combat the desertification of the modern city."

Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation in St Peter's Basilica
Pope Francis leads the Liturgy of the Word on the day he instituted in unity with the Orthodox Church. Representatives of all Christian churches attend the service. Without the conversion of heart to God, “ecology has not chance of succeeding." Saint Francis of Assisi is the model of caring for creation.

Pope stresses Jubilee, God’s tenderness for women who had an abortion, Lefebvrians, prisoners, the sick
In a letter to Mgr Rino Fisichella, Pope Francis adds new criteria to traditional ones to receive indulgence. All priests can forgive the sin of abortion by preparing themselves to welcome sincerely the sinners. The sick and the lonely can accept “suffering as an experience of closeness to the Lord”. The Jubilee year might bring amnesty, whilst a cell’s door might become a Holy Door. Through works of mercy, one can obtain plenary indulgence. The pontiff seeks reconciliation with the Society of St Pius X.

Pope: Our final embrace with Christ and the idleness "of chatter"
As public Masses begin again in Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis calls Christians to witness to hope (and fear) of the definitive encounter with Jesus Christ. "He will come to see me so that I may see him with my own eyes, embrace him and be with him always." "Let us comfort one another through good deeds and good words, on this road."

Bartholomew I and Catholics together on World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation
For the first time tomorrow, Orthodox and Catholics will celebrate event together, which Pope Francis picked this year. The content of the patriarch’s message is very similar to that of the encyclical Laudato si’. Man is a fool to think that he owns creation rather than being its steward. Ascetic behaviour can correct the excesses of consumerism. The Gospel can clean the spiritual garbage caused by material garbage.

For pope, the blessed martyr Flavianus Michael Malke can bring “consolation” to persecuted Mideast Christians
During the Angelus, Pope Francis mentioned yesterday’s beatification in Harissa (Lebanon) of the bishop killed during the Armenian-Syriac Genocide (1915), appealing to the international community to "do something" to end violence and abuses against religious freedom. He also urged the faithful to pray for the migrants who died trying to reach Europe, with a minute of silence observed for the 71 victims who suffocated to death in a lorry on their way to Vienna. “With external attitudes, one cannot call oneself a Christian unless one changes one’s heart,” he said. “The border between good and evil does not run outside of us but within us, in our consciousness."

Fr. Samir of Amadiya: The Pope is the voice of Iraqi refugees
by Bernardo Cervellera
The Chaldean priest met Pope Francis, asking him to keep the world’s focus on Christian refugees from Mosul and the Nineveh Plain. His diocese is home to 3500 Christian families and almost half a million Yazidis who fled Islamic State violence. ISIS is not all Islam and there are Muslims who want an Iraq of coexistence. Christians might not emigrate, but remain in their own land. Aid projects for refugees: school for children, work for adults, a home for every family. An appeal to AsiaNews.

Pope on prayer: God is "the caress that keeps us alive"
At the general audience, Pope Francis explains the value of prayer in family life. Rediscovering our love for God. He is not only "the great Being, the Almighty, who created all things, the judge who controls every action." "There are mothers and fathers who could win the Nobel Prize" because in 24 hours they do things that they would need 48 hours for. "The Gospel read and pondered in the family is like a good bread that nourishes everyone’s heart". Appointment for September 1 at 17 in St. Peter for a Liturgy of the Word on the World Day of Prayer for the care of creation, together with the Orthodox.

Pope: Who is Jesus for me? Answer in the silence of our heart. Appeal for peace in Ukraine
Three times at the Angelus Sunday, Pope Francis calls on people to ask themselves "Who is Jesus for me?". "Everything we have in the world does not satisfy our hunger for the infinite. We need Jesus. " Fidelity to God is "fidelity to a person ... And this person is Jesus." Appeal for peace in eastern Ukraine.
