Pope: we must listen more to our conscience as Benedict XVI does, not to whatever suits or pleases us
During the Angelus, Francis stressed the value of conscience in Jesus, who was not "remote-controlled" but decided in "obedience to the Father", together with Him. With his renunciation, even Benedict XVI "gave us a great example of this, when the Lord had made it clear, in prayer, what step he had to take." A Christian who does not speak with God is not free.
For Pope, following Jesus is to choose an uncomfortable path that is not that of success or earthly glory
Following Christ "leads to true freedom, freedom from selfishness and sin." For the pontiff, "in Peter, as in the other disciples and in each of us, the temptation of the Evil One, who wants to turn us away from God’s will, stands in opposition to the grace of the Father.”
