Pope Encourages Arabic-speaking Pilgrims to Manifest God’s Word in Everyday Life

Reminds That Profession of Faith Manifests Our Common Response to Word of God

Live fully the Word of God in everyday life.

Pope Francis encouraged Arabic-speaking Christians, especially those from Lebanon, Syria, and the Middle East, to do so during today’s General Audience of Wednesday, February 14, 2018, which marks Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent.

After his catechesis on the Creed and the universal prayer, in the Liturgy of the Mass, the Pope stressed that “the profession of faith manifests our common response, to what we have listened together, to the Word of God.”

“This answer comes from our hearts and is embodied in everyday life,” he said.

Pope Francis concluded, saying: “May the Lord bless you all and protect you from the evil one! “
