Make your lives be a hymn of praise to God’s greatness.
Pope Francis encouraged Arabic-speaking Christians, especially those from Egypt, Iraq and the Middle East present in St. Peter’s Square, to do so during today’s General Audience of Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2019.
After continuing today’s catechesis on the Our Father, the Pope stressed, “The invocation of the name of God has the sole purpose of sanctifying it and not of instrumentalizing it.”
“‘Hallowed be your name’ means to commit myself so that my life may be a hymn of praise to the greatness of God; so that it be a concrete manifestation of my faith in Him. ”
“This means,” he added, “to go on the path of holiness so that others may glorify His holy name.
Pope Francis concluded, saying: “May the Lord bless you all and protect you from evil! “
