Pope Francis makes surprise stop at Vatican unveiling of Our Lady of Aparecida

Vatican City, Sep 3, 2016 / 07:33 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Ahead of his meeting with volunteers Saturday, Pope Francis decided to pop in for the inauguration of a new statue of Our Lady of Aparecida in the Vatican Gardens.

The fact that the statue has been placed in the gardens is significant, since they have not received a new piece of art since 2010.

“I'm glad that the image of Our Lady of Aparecida is in the Gardens,” Pope Francis said at the unveiling Sept. 3. “In 2013 I had promised to return next year: I do not know if it will be possible, but at least I will have her very close, here.”

The statue, designed by a Brazilian artist, is a joint initiative of the Archdiocese of Aparecida and the Embassy of Brazil to the Holy See. Cast in bronze, it depicts a boat with three fishermen holding a full fishing net, and frames a replica statue of Our Lady of Aparecida.

Pope meets with workers of mercy at Jubilee for Volunteers
03/09/2016 12:48

(Vatican Radio) Thousands of volunteers and “workers of mercy” took part in a special Jubilee Audience with Pope Francis on Saturday morning in St Peter’s Square.

Following a morning of song and dance, with testimonies from volunteers from all over the world, Pope Francis spoke on the theme of love, basing his reflection on the St Paul’s hymn to love from the First Letter to the Corinthians.

“This teaching must be for us an unshakable certainty,” the Pope said: “The love of God will never diminish in our lives or in history.” God’s love, he said, is “youthful, active, dynamic” and has “an attraction beyond all telling.” It is faithful and fruitful.

During his catechesis to the volunteers, the Pope stressed how the Church is called to be close in need. He encouraged volunteers in their solidarity towards others, especially in a world tempted by indifference.

Cardinal Amato's words at Canonization Mass
2016-09-04 Vatican Radio

(Vatican Radio) During the Canonization Mass for Blessed Mother Teresa, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, Cardinal Angelo Amato presented a brief biography of the Church's newest Saint in the presence of Pope Francis.

Below is an English language translation of the address of Cardinal Angelo Amato, Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints

This humble nun, to whom countless numbers of people turn, affectionately calling her “Mother Teresa”, is the Blessed Soul we are presenting to your Holiness today so that, with her wished-for canonization, the whole world may contemplate her, ask her intercession, and imitate her in charitable works.

Throughout her life, following the example of Christ the Good Samaritan, she was always close to anyone she encountered who was in need, sharing in the suffering of those who live on the extreme outskirts of society and witnessing to God’s boundless love for His people.

I would like to present briefly the salient points of her life:

Homily for the Canonization of Mother Teresa: Full text
2016-09-04 Vatican Radio

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Sunday celebrated the Rite of Canonization for Mother Teresa of Calcutta, at a Solemn Mass offered in St Peter’s Square.

During his homily, the Holy Father said, “Mother Teresa, in all aspects of her life, was a generous dispenser of divine mercy, making herself available for everyone through her welcome and defence of human life, those unborn and those abandoned and discarded.”


To the many volunteers in Rome for the Jubilee for Volunteers and Workers of Mercy, Pope Francis offered St Teresa of Calcutta as a “model of holiness.”

Below, please find the full text of Pope Francis’ prepared homily for the Mass for the Canonization of St Teresa of Calcutta:

Homily of His Holiness Pope Francis
 Holy Mass and Rite of Canonization of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Saint Peter’s Square, 4 September 2016

“Who can learn the counsel of God?”  (Wis 9:13).  This question from the Book of Wisdom that we have just heard in the first reading suggests that our life is a mystery and that we do not possess the key to understanding it.  There are always two protagonists in history: God and man.  Our task is to perceive the call of God and then to do his will.  But in order to do his will, we must ask ourselves, “What is God’s will in my life?”

Pope concludes Mass and canonization with Angelus
2016-09-04 Vatican Radio

(Vatican Radio) At the conclusion of the Mass in which he canonized Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Pope Francis led the faithful in the customary Sunday recitation of the Angelus.

In remarks ahead of the Marian prayer, the Holy Father greeted and thanked all those who took part in the day’s celebrations, especially those most closely attached to St Teresa
.

He also thanked the various dignitaries in attendance, as well as the pilgrims who had come from all over the world.

Pope Francis spoke in a special way to the many volunteers present, who are in Rome to celebrate the Jubilee for Volunteers and Workers of Mercy. In this context the Pope remembered especially those who offer their service in “difficult and risky” situations. He recalled Sister Isabel, a Spanish missionary sister who was killed last week in Haiti, as well as other religious sisters who have suffered violence in recent days.

The full text of Pope Francis’ prepared remarks for the Angelus can be found below:

Dear brothers and sisters,

While we prepare to conclude this celebration, I want to greet and thank all of you who have taken part:

First of all, the Missionaries of Charity, who are the spiritual family of Mother Teresa. Your holy Foundress always watches over your journey and obtains for you the ability to be faithful to God, to the Church, and to the poor.

Pope: Saint Mother Teresa 'a light in the darkness of many'
04/09/2016 17:08

Pope Francis waves to the faithful as he leaves after Holy Mass and the canonization of Mother Teresa of Calcutta

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Sunday declared Mother Teresa of Calcutta a Saint, saying that she shone a light in the darkness of the many who no longer had tears to shed for their poverty and suffering.

In his homily during the canonization Mass in St. Peter’s Square, the Pope highlighted how the little nun who died in 1997 had taken in society’s most unwanted, and shamed world leaders for the "crimes of poverty they themselves created".

To the some 120,000 pilgrims who filled the Square for the canonization Mass, Pope Francis held up Mother Teresa as the model for a Church that goes to the peripheries to bring comfort and the light of the Gospel to poor and wounded souls.

“Let us carry her smile in our hearts – he said - and give it to those whom we meet along our journey, especially those who suffer” he said.

Applause erupted in the Square even before the Pope finished pronouncing the rite of canonization…

And admitting that even he will find it hard to call her “Saint Teresa” because her holiness is so tender and fruitful that we will continue to spontaneously call her “mother”, Francis praised her as the merciful saint who defended the lives of the unborn and those abandoned and discarded.

Relics of St Teresa venerated in Rome following canonization
2016-09-05 Vatican Radio

(Vatican Radio) The celebration of the life and sanctity of Mother Teresa of Calcutta will continue in Rome in the days following her canonization on Sunday.

Cardinal Parolin: ‘St. Teresa shows that love has to hurt’
2016-09-05 Vatican Radio

(Vatican Radio)  Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State, celebrated the Mass of Thanksgiving on Monday for the canonization of Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

In his homily for the Mass in St. Peter’s Square, Cardinal Parolin recalled several key moments of her life and the thirst for God which drove her every action.

‘Caritas Christi urget nos: the love of Christ compels us’ was the recurring theme of Cardinal Pietro Parolin’s homily for the Thanksgiving Mass.

These words, he said, summed up the flame of love which compelled the now-St. Teresa of Calcutta during her life and which compel us to follow her example.

Cardinal Parolin revisited several of the key events of Mother Teresa’s life, including her self-definition as ‘a little pencil in God’s hands’.

‘Mother Teresa,’ he said, ‘was a clear mirror of the love of God and an admirable example of service to our neighbor, especially to the poorest, most derelict, and most abandoned of people.’

He also recalled her constant fight for the rights of the unborn, which he said grew out of her recognition that the worst form of poverty is ‘to feel unloved, unwanted, scorned’.

Pope Francis blesses a group of young pilgrim cyclists in the Vatican
2016-09-06 Vatican Radio

(Vatican Radio) A surprise meeting on Tuesday morning in the Vatican made the day for a group of young pilgrims from northern Italy who has cycled to Rome in pilgrimage for this Holy Year of Mercy.

Pope Francis himself stepped out of his Vatican residence at Casa Santa Marta and into the square in front of the building to greet the young ‘pilgrim cyclists’ and to bestow his blessing upon them and ‘don Andrea’, the priest who has accompanied them on their pilgrimage.

The young people have travelled on bicycle down the backbone of Italy from two parishes that are part of the Milan diocese. They intend to resume their pilgrimage with a torchlight procession ‘on wheels’.

Pope to President of 'Bambino Gesù' hospital: 'offer care and mercy'
2016-09-06 Vatican Radio

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Tuesday encouraged the President of the Vatican’s ‘Bambino Gesù’ pediatric hospital to continue to promote the institution’s good work and promised his personal contribution.

In the course of a private audience with Mariella Enoc – at the head of the children’s hospital since February 2015 – the Pope assured her of his continuing support and said the hospital must evermore be a ‘great work of mercy’.

During the heart-to-heart conversation that ‘Bambino Gesù’ President Mariella Enoc said took place in an atmosphere of great friendliness and intimacy, Pope Francis expressed deep interest in an ongoing charity project that sees the Vatican institution actively supporting the Pediatric Hospital of Bangui, in the Central African Republic.

“The Pope even pledged his personal help ” – she told Vatican Radio  - “an economic contribution that will help us ‘adopt’ the African hospital and help it to grow by providing medical formation, by establishing a school that specializes in pediatric care and by building new wards”.
