It’s now a matter of public record that yesterday during his Sunday Angelus address, Pope Francis omitted a sizeable chunk of text on Hong Kong.
In his Angelus address, Pope Francis reflected on the Sunday Gospel reading from St. Matthew, in which Jesus thanks God for having hidden the mystery of the kingdom of heaven “from the wise and the learned” and “revealed them to little ones.”
Pope Francis is praising U.N. Security Council efforts for worldwide cease-fires to help tackle the coronavirus pandemic.
True love is not defined by preserving one’s personal interests but by willingness to sacrifice oneself for the good of others, Pope Francis said.
With the coronavirus pandemic continuing, Pope Francis asked people to also remember the ongoing crises in Syria and Yemen, and he offered prayers to the thousands of people in western Ukraine suffering the effects of violent flooding.
Pope Francis on Sunday urged political and military leaders in Libya to end their hostilities and called on the international community to take “to heart” the plight of migrants trapped in the lawless nation.
