TOPIC: "Pontiff Urges Youths To Make A Mess"
From Reuters Post: Mon Jul 13, 2015
Pope Francis left for Rome on Sunday at the end of a trip to South America during which he censured capitalism, championed the rights of the poor, warned of irreversible damage to the planet and urged youths to "make a mess".
In passionate speeches, the Argentine pontiff urged the destitute to change the world economic order and branded the unfettered pursuit of money as the "dung of the devil". He also sought forgiveness for the sins committed by the Catholic Church against native Americans during the colonial era.
At a final rally in Paraguay, Francis urged tens of thousands of youths to look after their less fortunate peers and fight for a dignified life filled with hope and strength.
"They wrote a speech for me to give you. But speeches are boring," the Argentine pontiff said to loud cheers, casting aside his script. "Make a mess, but then also help to tidy it up. A mess which gives us a free heart, a mess which gives us solidarity, a mess which gives us hope."
It was not the first time Francis has called on young people to shake things up, repeating a mantra he voiced in Brazil in 2013 when he urged youngsters to demand a more outward-looking Catholic Church.
"We don't want young weaklings. We do not want young people who tire quickly, who live life worn out with faces of boredom. We want youths with hope and strength," Francis told the crowd, as night fell over the banks of the Paraguay River outside the capital Asuncion.
Earlier on Sunday the pope heard harrowing tales of life in a flood-prone shantytown and appealed to the slum dwellers, many forced from their farms and now squatting on city land, to stay united in their struggle for better living and working conditions.
Peace Be With You Always
The Pontiff wants a better world. Obvious.
How to bring it about?
The Law of the Lord.
1 Love God with all your being and above all else.
2 Love your neighbor as you love yourself.
Jesus says in the Notebooks to love your God and Neighbor more than yourself. Give! Give! and the more you give, the more God gives to you. A circle. With God.
We are the outlets, God is the Source. The Source never dries up!
Seek first the Kingdom of God and everything is ordered therein. God is your help and Guide for life!
Guide you right to the Kingdom of Eternal Life in Peace and Grace.
Guide you and yours right to Heaven. Guide all of mankind right to Heaven!
I pray for a better world! A life, rich in spirit! Rich internally, rivers of life flowing over my soul, over your soul, always watered! Always at peace and serene! Never ending. That's Heaven.
Jesus came to bring a Second Paradise! But was rejected by the stubborn, selfish, egotistical men and women, Satan's henchmen. Thus the Second Paradise cannot come until Christ Himself settles the mess.
Let's pray together for a better world, a better life wherein the spirit reigns and peace and serenity are always. Where there is peace there is abundant love.
God is the Sun, We are the little stars that orbit.
Peace be with you always
