On Sunday Pope Francis visited Our Lady of Oration, a parish just outside Rome, and in his homily he emphasized the importance of listening to God’s Word, specifically through reading the Bible each day.
The Holy Father said during his homily:
“What are the responsibilities of a Christian? Maybe you tell me: go to Mass on Sundays, fast and abstain during Holy Week, do this … But the first responsibility of a Christian is to listen to the Word of God, listen to Jesus, because he speaks to us and he saves us with his Word.”
The pope went on to explain that listening to the Word of God makes our faith stronger and more robust, whereas listening to things that are not of Jesus can darken the eyes and “damage the light of the soul.”
