Ecuador 7/7/15 Pope Francis told a large crowd, “I ask you to pray fervently for this intention,” the Pope continued, “so that Christ can take even what might seem to us impure, scandalous or threatening, and turn it into a miracle. Families today need miracles!”
Jesus’ miracle was simple, turn away from sin, and come follow me. There is nothing impure, scandalous or threatening about that. For Jesus is none of these. Families need love, charity, mutual respect for each other in Jesus.
However, what the Pope fails to mention is, people need to stop sinning, turn away from sin. There is the impurity, scandal and threat of the message – you need to do something in return- the Pope fails to mention the most important aspect of Jesus’ ministry.
