Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time

If you receive a text message or an e-mail from Fr. Roberto Cid asking for a favor, do not respond. It is a hoax!

Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Social charity

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

The Angelus is a beautiful prayer. We Christians traditionally pray it three times a day, in the morning, at noon and in the evening because it reminds us that by virtue of the Incarnation of the Eternal Word of God, everything that is truly human, including work and social relations, has become a vehicle for communion with God.

The Pope usually prays the Angelus on Sundays at noon with those present in St. Peter’s Square in Rome. Early on in his pontificate at one such event, Pope Francis recommended a book on mercy by Cardinal Kasper. In that book, the German prelate, points out that one of the greatest contributions of Pope Benedict has been his explicitly placing mercy, charity at the center of discussions on social issues. Incidentally, that is also what the Gospel passage proclaimed this Sunday does.
