"Stop! I am asking you with all my heart. Stop!" says pope as he speaks out on the Middle East, Iraq and Ukraine
He mentions children, victims of war, "from whom we take away the hope for a decent life," urging the parties to address "every diatribe with the tenacity of dialogue and negotiation and the power of reconciliation". As tomorrow marks 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War, "a day of mourning," we should learn the lessons of history. The Gospel makes us know the true Jesus, the living Jesus, who speaks to the heart and is a life changer as he was for Saint Francis of Assisi. "The joy of finding the treasure of the Kingdom of God comes through, can be seen. Christians cannot hide their faith."

Pope: there are no unemployed in the Kingdom of God
During the Angelus, Pope Francis explained the parable of the day workers called up at different times but paid the same remuneration. "Jesus wants to open our hearts to the logic of the love of the Father, which is free and generous.” US missionary Stanley Francis Rother, killed in 1981 by death squads in Guatemala, is beatified.
Pope John Paul II, a lead role in bringing down the Berlin Wall
At the Angelus, Pope Francis hopes a culture of encounter may spread, "capable of bringing down all walls," so that there is no more persecution or killings because of one’s faith. “Where there's a wall there is closure of hearts. We need bridges, not walls”. Thanksgiving Day in Italy, solidarity with the world of agriculture, to "cultivate the land in a sustainable and inclusive way". Dedication of the Lateran Basilica, an opportunity to rediscover the Church as our "spiritual home” and Christians capable of giving witness to the faith in love. “We are Christian not because of what we say, but what we do".

Pope: Jesus "does not take the Cross from us, but carries it with us", let us entrust people and situations to him
“So many goals are illusory: they promise some respite and distraction, they guarantee peace and fun, only to leave the same solitude as before, they are "fireworks". That is why Christ indicated where to go:"Come to me".

For pope, every Christians has a wonderful mission destined for everybody
Francis spoke about the Gospel of Luke, where the "workers" of which Jesus speaks "are the missionaries of the Kingdom of God. Their task is to proclaim a message of salvation for everyone." The mission "is hindered by the evil one”. That is why the worker of the Lord "will strive to be free" from human influences of every kind.

Pope, "in the hope given to us by the Risen Christ", calls for Fr Tom’s release
“All of us Christians are called to pass on this message of resurrection to those we meet; especially to those who suffer, who are alone, who are in precarious conditions, the sick, the refugees, the marginalised.”
