The Pope has been hijacked! This is something that has happened since the beginning of Pope Francis’ papacy and is still happening.
Because Pope Francis speaks so much about God’s MERCY he has been accused of changing the Church’s position of various issues – but this is not true! Pope Francis has said “The Church’s teachings are clear and I am a son of the Church”.
The Pope has simply shown us how to love others who do not agree with us, or live like us, or hold the same values as us – and that to love them is not a compromise of our own beliefs.
Let us pray for an increase of mercy and understanding, and for all those who have been hurt by Christians who have not been loving to others as we pray: Hail Mary…
Challenge: When you disagree with someone, do it with love!
