Let us pray today for the artists, who have this great capacity for creativity and for the path of beauty they show us the way forward. May the Lord give us all the grace of creativity at this time.
In his homily, the Pope commented on the Gospel of the day (Jn 6,22 29) in which Jesus rebukes the crowd for seeking him, after the multiplication of the loaves and fish, only because he was satisfied, and exhorted him to strive not for the food that is lost, but for the food that remains until eternal life, and that the Son of man will give. The crowd asks what to do and Jesus answers: work of God is that you believe in the one he sent The crowd that listened to Jesus without getting tired said Francis, once satisfied, thought of making him king: he had forgotten his first enthusiasm for the Word of Jesus. And the Lord reminds the crowd of the first feeling. Corrects the path of people who had taken a more mundane than evangelical path. So it is with us also when we distance ourselves from the Gospel path and lose the memory of our first enthusiasm for the Word of the Lord. Jesus brings us back to the first meeting; this is a grace in the face of temptations to distance ourselves. The grace to always return to the first call, when Jesus looked at us with love. Each of us has the experience of the first meeting in which Jesus said to us: me Then, along the way, we distance ourselves and lose the freshness of the first call. The Pope invites us to pray that the Lord will give us the grace to return to the moment when we had the experience of meeting Jesus.
Following is the cover samsung galaxy a5 unieuro text of the homily transcribed by Vatican News:
The people who custodia iphone 6s originale had listened to Jesus all day, and then had custodia pelle iphone 5s this grace of multiplying the loaves and saw the power of Jesus, wanted to make him king. Before, they went to Jesus to hear the word and also to ask the sick to heal. They spent the whole day listening to Jesus without getting bored, without getting tired or (being) tired, but they were there, custodia pelle iphone 6 plus happy. But then when they saw that Jesus was feeding them, something cover samsung j7 2016 milan they did not expect, they thought: would be a good ruler for us and he will certainly amazon cover samsung s6 edge plus be able to free us from the power of the Romans and take the country forward And they were enthusiastic to make him king. Their intention changed, because they saw and thought: because a person who performs this miracle, who feeds the people, can be a good ruler But at that moment they had forgotten the enthusiasm that the Word of Jesus aroused in their hearts.
Jesus went away and went to pray. Those people, cover samsung s6 stitch it turns out, stayed there, and the next day they were looking for Jesus, he must be here, cover samsung a5 originali they said, because they had seen that he had not boarded the boat with the others. And there was a boat there, which stayed there But they did not know that Jesus had reached the others walking on the water. So, they decided to go to the other part of the Tiberias sea to look for Jesus and when they saw him, the first word custodia iphone 5s pelle they say (is): when did you get here cover samsung galaxy core duos As to say: don understand, that seems like a strange thing “.
And Jesus brings them back to the first feeling, to what they had before the multiplication of the loaves, when they heard the Word of God: “Truly, truly, I say to you:
you are looking for me not because you saw signs as in the beginning, the signs of the word, which excited them, the signs of healing not because you saw signs, but because you ate bread and were satisfied “. Jesus reveals their intention and says: this is how you changed your attitude And they, instead of justifying themselves: Lord, no were humble. Jesus continues: “Strive not for the food that is lost, but for the food that remains until eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For this cover samsung a5 2017 unieuro is who the Father marked with his seal “. And they, agreed, said: “What must we do to carry out the works of God you believe in the Son of God This is a case in which Jesus corrects the attitude of the people, of the crowd, because in the middle of the way he had cover samsung galaxy core lte prime a little distance from the first moment, from the first spiritual consolation and had taken a immagini cover samsung path that was not fair, a path more mundane than evangelical .
This leads us to think of the many times that we in life begin a path in following Jesus, custodia in silicone per iphone 7 behind Jesus, with the values of the Gospel, and halfway there comes another idea, we see some sign and we distance ourselves and we conform cambiare cover samsung galaxy s3 to something more temporal, more material, more mundane, can be, and we lose the memory of that first enthusiasm we had when we heard Jesus speak. The Lord always makes us return to the first meeting, to the first moment in which He looked at us, spoke to us and made us want to follow Him. This is a grace to be asked of the Lord, because we in life will always have this temptation to distance ourselves because we see something else: that will work, but that idea is good We distance ourselves.
The grace to always return to the first call, to the first moment: do not forget, do not forget my galaxy tab a6 10.1 cover samsung story, when Jesus looked at me with love and said to me: “This is your way”; when Jesus through so many people made me understand what was the way of the Gospel and not other ways that are a bit mundane, with other values. Back to the first date.
I was always impressed that among the things Jesus said on the morning of the Resurrection: “Go custodia a portafoglio iphone 6 to my disciples and tell them to go to Galilee, there they will find me”, Galilee was the place of the first meeting. There they had found Jesus. Each of us has his “Galilee inside (himself), the very moment in which Jesus came and said to us:” Follow me “. In life, what happened to these people good, because then they say: “What should we do”, They immediately obeyed, pikachu cover samsung j5 it cover samsung s4 active amazon happens that we distance ourselves and look for other values, other hermeneutics, other things, and we lose the freshness of the first call .
The Holy Father ended the celebration with adoration and the Eucharistic blessing, inviting him to Spiritual communion. Following is the prayer recited by the Pope:
My cover samsung j5 2017 unicorno Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. I love you above all things, and my soul sighs for You. But, as I cannot receive you now in the Blessed Sacrament, come, at least spiritually, to my heart. I embrace you as if you were already with me: cover samsung j5 contrassegno I unite with You entirely. Ah! do not allow it to separate me from You again!..
