Safeguard your Heart
Those attending the Angelus Blessing with Pope Francis last weekend received a free booklet in Italian. The booklet contained some of the basic teachings of the church and was written in an encouraging rather than condemning tone. The Pope points out the obvious fact that we are all sinners; not to discourage us; on the contrary, he understands that we all have some work to do to become the wonderful being God calls us to be.
The title of the booklet comes from a sentence in one of the Pope’s homilies when he makes a comparison between keeping our homes and loved ones’ safe and keeping our own hearts safe from the harm that sinful attitudes and behaviours inflict. And he recommends anew the value of a daily examination of our lives so that we can address these issues as the happen, rather than letting them fester.
