Chile Looks Forward to Pope Francis’ Visit 
January 4, 20

© Radio Vaticano
Pope Francis’ first international trip of the New Year will take place in less than two weeks. From January 15-18 the Holy Father will visit Chile, first stage of his itinerary, before going on to Peru, until the 22nd.

To reduce the costs of the trip, Pope Francis requested that useless expenses be avoided, using recycled materials and goods, said the Executive Director of Pope Francis’ visit, Javier Peralta, to the Chilean newspaper T13.

Therefore, the Pope’s request has been followed up, predisposing installations, such as altars, which can be used in other circumstances. According to T13, the altars alone will occupy a surface of 4,500 square meters; 600,000 hosts will be prepared for the faithful’s Communion.

The costs of the visit will be shared between the Catholic Church and the Chilean State, which will be in charge of the financial burdens for the Holy Father’s safety and the Pontiff’s meetings with the Authorities.

T13 reported that the total expenses foreseen will amount to four million pesos, 42% for the events in Santiago, 28% for the Mass at Iquique, 22% for the visit to Temuco, 5% for stipends and 3% for structural costs. Eventual surpluses will be donated to non-profit organizations that aid immigrants. Caritas-Chile and the Vatican selected the beneficiaries.

Pope to primary school teachers: create culture of encounter
05 January 2018, 13:51

Pope Francis urges primary school teachers to promote respect for others and for the environment

Pope Francis met in the Vatican on Friday with the Association of Italian Primary School Teachers, highlighting the importance of educating young children to be open and caring towards others and to the environment

By Philippa Hitchen

The Pope began by urging all teachers to promote a culture of encounter, whether they work in Catholic schools or within the state system. The challenge, he said, is to educate children to be open and interested in other people, respecting their different histories, their strengths and weaknesses, their resources and limitations.

Combat bullying culture

Rather than becoming school bullies, he insisted, children must learn to be free of the prejudices stemming from a culture that is competitive and aggressive towards others, especially foreigners or anyone seen as an obstacle to personal achievement.

Pope on Epiphany: look up to Jesus, dare to set out and give freely
06 January 2018, 08:57

By Robin Gomes

Pope Francis on Saturday held out the Magi as models, urging Christians to dare and look up to the star and “set out”, shaking off their comforts, to “give freely” and “do good” to “the least” of the “brothers and sisters” of Jesus.  The Pope’s exhortation came in his homily at a morning Mass in Rome’s St. Peter’s Basilica on the solemn feast of the Epiphany.

The Jan. 6th feast of the Epiphany, a holiday in the Vatican and Italy, commemorates the visit of the ‎Three Magi, or Wise Men from the East, who followed a star to find the Baby Jesus ‎in Bethlehem, an ‎event that symbolizes the manifestation of God, made man, to the people of the world outside the ‎chosen ‎people of Israel.

Pope’s Angelus for Epiphany: search for Jesus like the Magi
06 January 2018, 13:29 

Pope at Angelus in St. Peter's Square on Epiphany Day, 6 January 2018.  (AFP or licensors)     
 By Seàn-Patrick Lovett

Taking his cue from St Matthew’s description of the Magi and how they followed the star in search of the newborn king, Pope Francis focused on three attitudes which characterize the Epiphany, or “manifestation” of Jesus: “careful searching, indifference, fear”.

The Magi, the Scribes and Herod

It is the Magi who, even after their long journey, continue their “careful search” for the Messiah. The scribes and chief priests, who know perfectly well where Jesus has been born, are “indifferent” to that birth and stay within their comfort zones. Herod, according to Pope Francis, has the worst reaction of all: “fear”. He is afraid the Child will usurp his authority and pretends to want to pay Him homage only because he wants to eliminate Him. “See how fear generates hypocrisy”, added Pope Francis in an off-script remark.

Pope’s Mass with Baptisms in Sistine Chapel: “Transmit the Faith with language of the Family”
07 January 2018, 11:01 

Mass with Baptisms in Sistine Chapel  (Vatican Media)
By Seàn-Patrick Lovett

It was a celebration of contrasts: the stern gaze of Michelangelo’s “Last Judgment” staring down at the bustle of babies that on Sunday morning transformed the Sistine Chapel into a make-shift nursery. And then the somber voices of the Pontifical Choir chanting in counterpoint to the gurgles and cries of the infants.

Pope’s off the cuff homily

Pope Francis appeared to enjoy every minute of it, blessing each of the 18 baby girls and 16 boys in turn, and personally administering the Sacrament of Baptism on all of them.  This Sunday marks the feast day that recalls Jesus’ baptism in the River Jordan. Instead of delivering a scripted homily, the Pope chose to speak briefly off the cuff. In Italian, he used the word “dialect” to describe the “language” that needs to be used to guarantee the transmission of the Faith within the Family.

Pope tells Christians to celebrate the date of their Baptism

Pope Francis greets the crowds gathered in St. Peter's Square for the Angelus prayer  (Vatican Media)
By Linda Bordoni

Pope Francis has invited all Christians to mark the date of their Baptism and to celebrate it as the day when the Lord gave them the Holy Spirit to guide them in their lives.

The Feast of the Baptism of the Lord

The Pope was addressing the crowds gathered in St. Peter’s Square for the Sunday Angelus immediately after having baptized 34 babies in the Sistine Chapel, an annual event that marks the feast day of Jesus’ Baptism in the River Jordan.

Reminding those present that today’s celebration of the Baptism of the Lord concludes the time of Christmas, the Pope said it invites us to think about our own Baptism.

All Christians should take note of the date of their own Baptism.

Pope at Mass: ‘Contempt for the weak is work of Satan’
08 January 2018, 13:12 

What is it within ourselves that makes us mock and belittle the weakest among us? That was the question Pope Francis posed during his homily at the morning Mass on Monday in the Casa Santa Marta.

By Devin Watkins

Pope Francis at Monday morning’s Mass reflected on the many Biblical stories that tell of a powerful person humiliating someone weaker and more vulnerable. The devil is behind this type of attitude, the Pope said, because there is no compassion in him.

The Holy Father took his cue from the First Reading, taken from the First Book of Samuel, about Samuel’s parents, Elkanah and Hannah. His father, Elkanah, had two wives: Hannah, who was barren, and Peninnah, who had borne him several children. Instead of consoling Hannah, Peninnah scorned and humiliated her on account of her infertility.

Pope to diplomats: World peace depends on right to life, disarmament
By Carol Glatz Catholic News Service
1.8.2018 5:59 AM ET

CNS/Paul Haring
VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Because everyone has a right to life, liberty and personal security, nations must find nonviolent solutions to conflict and difficulties, Pope Francis said.

A culture of peace "calls for unremitting efforts in favor of disarmament and the reduction of recourse to the use of armed force in the handling of international affairs," he said Jan. 8 in his annual address to diplomats accredited to the Vatican.

Given the urgent need to favor dialogue and diplomacy in conflict resolution and to end the stockpiling of weapons, "I would therefore like to encourage a serene and wide-ranging debate on the subject, one that avoids polarizing the international community on such a sensitive issue," the pope said.

At the start of a new year, the pope dedicated his speech to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which will celebrate the 70th anniversary of its adoption by the U.N. General Assembly in December.

The declaration was an attempt to help the world's nations base their relations on "truth, justice, willing cooperation and freedom" by upholding the fundamental rights of all human beings, he said. The very foundation of freedom, justice and world peace, he said, quoting the document, is built on recognizing and respecting these rights.

However, in his nearly 50-minute speech to the diplomats, the pope cautioned that there has been a movement to create "new rights" that often not only conflict with each other, but can be at odds with the traditional values and cultures of many countries, while neglecting the real needs they have to face.

"Somewhat paradoxically, there is a risk that, in the very name of human rights, we will see the rise of modern forms of ideological colonization by the stronger and the wealthier, to the detriment of the poorer and the most vulnerable," he said.

Seven decades after the creation of the universal declaration, Pope Francis said, "it is painful to see how many fundamental rights continue to be violated today. First among all of these is the right of every human person to life, liberty and personal security."

War, violence and abortion all infringe on these rights, he said.

Pope at Mass: Pastor’s authority comes from closeness to God and people
09 January 2018, 14:27

Pope Francis delivering his homily at Mass in Santa Marta chapel, on 9 January, 2018.  (Vatican Media)
In his homily at Mass, Pope Francis compares the authority of Jesus with that of the Scribes and doctors ‎of the law who were far from God and the people. ‎

By Robin Gomes

Emotion, closeness and consistency are what characterize the authority of Jesus the pastor. Pope Francis made the point in his homily at Mass, Tuesday morning, in the chapel of Casa Santa Marta in the Vatican, where he reflected on Mark’s Gospel where Jesus teaches with authority in the synagogue of Capernaum and drives an unclean spirit out of a man.

Pope Francis’ upcoming visit to the Peruvian city of Puerto Maldonado will undoubtedly give visibility and voice to the indigenous people of the Amazon.

In an interview published by the Pan-Amazonian Church Network – Repam – Fr Manuel Jesus Romero of the Apostolic Vicariate of Puerto Maldonado said the Amazon’s indigenous people have an urgent need to make their rights known as they are increasingly pushed from their ancestral lands.   

Indigenous people of the Amazon increasingly at risk

“Their territory is increasingly being invaded, their space is becoming smaller and smaller; the livelihoods with which they have survived for so many centuries are being destroyed: fishing, hunting, trees and rivers are more and more in danger. Therefore their lives are in danger” he said.

Pope Francis’ arrival in the city of Puerto Maldonado, a symbol of Peru's Amazon indigenous communities, is scheduled to take place on 19 January. Here the Pope will receive representatives of different Amazon communities who will be able to voice their concerns and listen to the Pope’s message of hope and encouragement.

Pope Francis gives joy of circus to Rome’s poor
10 January 2018, 14:31

Medrano Circus in Rome's Saxa Rubra district
Pope Francis offers the joy of a night at the circus to Rome's poor through the Papal Almoner, taking the opportunity to provide the services of health care professionals to those in need.

Those who live on the existential peripheries of Rome are to be treated to a special “Circus of Solidarity”, thanks to the generosity of Pope Francis.

The Holy Father is offering a ticket for a fun-filled evening to more than 2,000 of Rome’s poor or homeless people, several refugees, a group of prisoners, and many families in great need.

The event will take place on the evening of Thursday, 11 January at the Medrano Circus in Rome’s northern Saxa Rubra district.

The Papal Almoner released a press statement on Wednesday containing details of the event.

Not content with offering just an evening of fun, Archbishop Konrad Krajewski said Pope Francis’ generosity is also providing a “sack supper” and medical personnel.
