Pope at Mass: We must not fail to weep. We must not fail to respond !!!
Pope Francis celebrates Mass for the World Day of Migrants and Refugees. In his homily, he reflects on this Sunday’s liturgical readings and reminds us “it is not just about migrants”.
By Vatican News
The first World Day of Migrants and Refugees was celebrated in 1914. Since then, this annual commemoration has become an opportunity to express concern for vulnerable people on the move, and to pray for increased awareness about the opportunities that migration offers.
Concern for the vulnerable
Attention to the vulnerable is at the heart of this Sunday’s Responsorial Psalm. In his homily, Pope Francis noted how the Psalmist “makes explicit mention” of those who are “forgotten and subject to oppression”. The Lord has a particular concern “for foreigners, widows and orphans”, said the Pope, because “they are without rights, excluded and marginalized”.

Care for the less privileged
Quoting from the Books of Exodus and Deuteronomy, both of which warn against mistreating widows orphans, and strangers, the Pope described God’s “loving care for the less privileged”. He called it “a characteristic trait of the God of Israel”, one that is “likewise required, as a moral duty, of all those who would belong to his people”.
Not just about migrants
The theme for this 105th World Day of Migrants and Refugees is “It is not Just about Migrants”. It is about “all those in existential peripheries who, together with migrants and refugees, are victims of the throwaway culture”, explained the Pope. “The Lord calls us to restore their humanity, as well as our own, and to leave no one behind”.
The causes of exclusion
Pope Francis said the Lord invites us “to consider the injustices that cause exclusion”. These include “the privileges of the few, who, in order to preserve their status, act to the detriment of the many”.
He gave concrete examples of how “developing countries continue to be drained” of their resources “for the benefit of a few privileged markets”. Or how wars only affect some regions of the world, “yet weapons of war are produced and sold in other regions which are then unwilling to take in the refugees generated by these conflicts”.
The culture of comfort
In the First Reading, the Prophet Amos warns those who are at ease and seek pleasure without worrying about the ruin of God’s people. The Pope said it was striking how these warnings remain as timely as ever, twenty-eight centuries later. Today too, the “culture of comfort… makes us think only of ourselves”, he said. We become insensitive and indifferent. “Overly concerned with preserving our own well-being, we too risk being blind to our brothers and sisters in difficulty”.
Failing to weep
As Christians, “we cannot be indifferent to the tragedy of old and new forms of poverty”, said Pope Francis. “We cannot remain insensitive before the misery of so many innocent people. We must not fail to weep”, he added. “We must not fail to respond”.
Loving our neighbour
The commandment to love God and love our neighbor “cannot be separated”, said the Pope. “Loving our neighbour means being firmly committed to building a more just world, in which everyone has access to the goods of the earth, in which all can develop as individuals and as families, and in which fundamental rights and dignity are guaranteed to all”.
Being a neighbour
Loving our neighbour means “feeling compassion for the sufferings of our brothers and sisters, drawing close to them”, said the Pope. This means “being a neighbour to all those who are mistreated and abandoned on the streets of our world, soothing their wounds and bringing them to the nearest shelter, where their needs can be met”.
Sharing the journey
The Pope concluded by entrusting to the maternal love of Mary, Our Lady of the Way, “all migrants and refugees, together with those who live on the peripheries of our world and those who have chosen to share their journey”.

평화는 마음과 영혼의 회개를 수반하는 것입니다. 그래서 그것은 하나의 도전으로서, 영구히 전혀 새로운 차원으로 승화하기를 요청하는 도전입니다. 오전 4:09 - 2019년 9월 21일
정신적으로 우리가 미지근해질때 우리는 그리스도교 신자로서의 본질을 잃고 반쪽 외형만 신자가 되는 것입니다. 따라서 우리 주님께서는 오늘날 우리의 온전한 회개(Conversion)를 원하십니다.

Closeness to God, to Eachother, to the People of God,,,!

Pope at Mass: bishops and priests must be close to each other and to God's people Pope Francis asks for prayers for priests and bishops during Mass at the Casa Santa Marta, and urges all those who have received the gift of the priesthood to be close to each other and to the people of God. -By Linda Bordoni
Pope Francis on Friday focused on the ministry of bishops and asked the faithful to pray for them so they may never neglect the gift of their ministry.
He recalled Thursday’s Liturgical reading in which the Apostle Paul gives his advice to the young bishop Timothy, and said more advice to bishops is to be found in today’s reading.
Yesterday, he said, at the heart of the message was the call to never neglect the gift of ordained ministry.
Today, he continued, the reflection focusses on things that weaken the life of the ordained minister like money, gossip and silly arguments.
“When a minister – a priest, a deacon, a bishop – gives too much value to money”, he attaches himself to the root of all evils, the Pope said, recalling that Paul describes the love of money as the root of all evils.
Closeness to God
Continuing to give advice to bishops, but also to priests and deacons, Pope Francis then focused on the need for “closeness”.
He pinpointed four different ways that ordained ministers must be “close”.
First of all, a bishop "is a man who is close to God,” he said, recalling the fact that the apostles “invented” deacons in order to better serve widows and orphans,
Peter, he explained, tells us that our duty – that is the duty of the apostles – is “to pray and proclaim the Word”.
Thus, the Pope continued, “the bishop’s first task” is to pray: it gives us strength and awakens within us the awareness of this gift of the ordained ministry that must never be neglected.
Closeness to priests
Then he called on bishops to be close to their priests, to their deacons and to their collaborators: the ones who are closest to them.
“It is sad when a bishop forgets about his priests,” Pope Francis noted, it is sad to hear a priest complain he is unable to get in touch with his bishop or make an appointment to see him in a brief space of time.
“A priest has the right to know that he has a father,” he said.
Closeness between priests
The Pope then went on to speak of the need for closeness between priests.
Divisions within the presbytery, he warned, are the work of the devil. And when that happens, he continued, it leads to small groups who are divided by ideologies or by sympathies.
So, the third “closeness” of which I am speaking, Pope Francis said, is the need for closeness among priests themselves.
Closeness to the people of God
Finally, he continued, the fourth is that of bishops and priests with the people of God.
In the second Letter, he explained, Paul tells Timothy not to forget his mother and his grandmother, meaning that he must not forget his roots.
“Do not forget about your people, do not forget about your roots!” he said; “as a bishop and as a priest, you must always be close to the people of God”.
When a bishop breaks away from the people of God, the Pope explained, he ends up following ideologies that have nothing to do with the ministry: “he is not a minister, he is not a servant. He has forgotten the free gift that he received.”
The Pope concluded urging all ordained ministers not to forget the four ways in which they must nurture “closeness”: closeness to God, prayer, closeness of the bishop to his priests; closeness of priests to each other; closeness to the people of God.
And he asked those present to pray for their priests and bishops”, he said, “So we may safeguard the gift that has been given to us - with this closeness”.

Pope to Communications Dicastery: Be Christian witnesses to Truth
Pope to Communications Dicastery:
Be Christian witnesses to Truth
Pope Francis meets with members of the Vatican Dicastery for Communications on the occasion of their Plenary Assembly and gives them a series of examples of what communication should, and should not, be.
By Vatican News
Pope Francis is known to be a great communicator. But on Monday morning in the Vatican he gave an example of communication skills that surprised even those whose job it is to communicate him and his message throughout the world.
Communicating from the heart
The Pope began by playfully suggesting that his “seven-page discourse” (which was really only three) risked putting his audience to sleep. Which is why he preferred to talk to them informally about communication, in terms of what was “in his heart”.
Communicating without holding back
Pope Francis reminded members of the Dicastery that communication begins with an attitude: that of God who communicates Himself to us. In the same way, true communicators give of themselves, he said, “putting all your irons on the fire”, and holding back nothing.
The Pope stressed the need to communicate “all that is true, just, good, and beautiful”. This must be done, he said, using “mind and heart, heads and hands – everything”. It is in love, he added, that we see the fullness of communication.
Communicating not proselytizing
Pope Francis was firm about not engaging in a “commercial” style of communication that sets out to proselytize, or forcibly convert people. He quoted Pope emeritus Benedict XVI who once said, “the Church does not grow by proselytizing, but through witnessing”.
Communicating by witnessing
Communicating the Truth, means witnessing with your own life, said the Pope. “Being Christian means being witnesses, being martyrs”. He recalled the words of Saint Francis of Assisi, who said: “Preach the Gospel at all times. And when necessary, use words”. Witness, said the Pope, must always come first. Ours is a Church of martyrs, he added.
Communication not resignation
Pope Francis also warned against the temptation of “resignation”. Resignation, he said, does not reflect love for God. It exists in the pagan world, and Jesus Himself warns His disciples against the danger of “worldliness”. Do not fear “a Church of the few”, said the Pope, as long as we are like “salt, like yeast”.
Communicating using nouns
Pope Francis called for a communication that uses “nouns rather than adjectives”. Nouns identify people and things. Rather than using an adjective to describe a person as “this or that”, nouns communicate “the reality of people”, said the Pope, and this is what Christian communicators are called to do.
The Pope suggested a style of communication that is “austere but beautiful”. Not a “Rococo” kind of beauty, he said, but a beauty that expresses itself “through nouns”, through “witness”, through involving oneself in communication.
Communicating the joy of the Gospel
Pope Francis concluded his off-the-cuff remarks saying communicators should learn the language of the martyrs and the Apostles by rereading the Acts of the Apostles and the writings of the early Christian community. “Communicate the joy of the Gospel”, said the Pope, because “that is what God is asking you to do”.
Then he stood up and personally greeted each and every member of the Vatican Dicastery for Communications present at the audience.
All 500 of us.
