Pope’s General Audience: Embrace unity within the Church. Don’t give in to gossip – YouTube

Ave Maria!

The Pope gave a strong message on unity in the Church at the General audience on Wednesday.

What I like most about this video is the size of the audience! This is on a Wednesday, middle of the week and middle of the workday and St Peter’s Square is packed! The unity of this diverse crowd is a great backdrop for the Pope’s message. It also ties in with his homily in Calgari at Our Lady of Bonaria where he says that Our lady will teach us to look out for each other. Here he calls on Christians to pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are being persecuted for their faith.

There were two videos on Rome Reports on the event. The first is shorter and focuses on the pope and the large audience. The second is longer and includes a reading of the entire message in English by a prelate and an address of welcome to the many English speaking pilgrims in attendance from around the world.

He explained that having Catholic communities in different cultures and environments is a strength that needs to be nourished and protected. He also warned against the damage that comes with petty gossip.

Here is the longer one with full English:

The Pope added that the rich diversity of cultures within the Church is an example of how we can overcome differences through the shared belief in our faith. The Pope made a special appeal to pray for Christians under the threat of persecution.
