Pope Francis: Loss of the Sense of Sin Leads to “Christian Mediocrity”

Pope Francis: Loss of the Sense of Sin Leads to  ‘Christian Mediocrity’

Reflects on Those Who Suffer the Consequences of  Other’s Sins

VATICAN CITY, January 31, 2014 – Losing the sense of sin causes others  to pay for our “Christian mediocrity.” This was the central point of Pope  Francis’ homily today at Casa Santa Marta.

The Holy Father reflected today on the first reading which spoke of David’s  sin of adultery with Bathsheba which led to the murder of her husband, Uriah.  David, he said, rather than seeing his adultery as a grave sin, sees it as a  problem that needs to be resolved.

“This thing can happen to all of us,” he said. “We are all sinners and we are  all tempted and temptation is our daily bread. If one of us said: ‘I never had a  temptation’, either you’re a cherubim or a bit stupid, no?”

“Struggle is normal in life and the devil is never calm, he wants his  victory. But the problem – the most serious problem in this passage – is not so  much temptation and the sin against the 9th commandment, but how David behaves.  And David here does not speak of sin, he speaks of a problem that he needs to  resolve. This is a sign! When the Kingdom of God is  lessened, when the Kingdom of God decreases, one of the signs is that the sense  of sin is lost.”

The Holy Father went on to say that in praying  the Our Father, we pray for God’s kingdom to come, meaning “thy Kingdom  grow.” When the sense of sin is lost, so is the sense of the  Kingdom of God lost. In its place, he said, “emerges a very powerful  anthropological vision, in which ‘I can do anything.’”

“The power of man in place of the glory of God! This is the daily bread.  For this [reason] the everyday prayer to God ‘Your  kingdom come, your kingdom grow’ [is important], because  salvation does not come from our cleverness, our astuteness, in our intelligence  in doing business. Salvation comes from the grace of God and from the daily  training that we do with this grace in Christian life.”

Referring to Pius XII’s assertion that “the sin of the century is the loss of  the sense of sin”, the Pope reflected on Uriah, who represents the innocent  victims who suffer as consequence of our sins.

“I must confess, when I see these injustices, this human pride, also when I  see the danger that would happen to me, the danger of losing the sense of sin,  it does me well to think of the many Uriahs in history, the many Uriahs who even  today suffer from our Christian mediocrity, when we lose the sense of sin, when  we let the Kingdom of God fall.

Concluding his homily, Pope Francis called on the faithful to take a moment  to “pray for ourselves so that the Lord give us  always the grace to not lose the sense of sin, so that the Kingdom does not fall  from within us.”

 Storm Luisa with your prayers

 

          If we wish the Servant of God to continue, and even hasten, her ascent to the glory of the altar, let us give her a chance to perform first class miracles.

          Her holiness and the favors already granted should impregnate our supplications with unquenchable confidence.  

          It is certainly permissible to pray to her in our daily needs, but let us not be afraid to implore real miracles from her.  

          Let us invoke her or have her invoked in cases of fatal maladies, wherein science has to declare itself powerless.

Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity

For the glorification of the

Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta

Oh Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit we praise and thank You for the gift of holiness You granted to Your faithful servant Luisa Piccarreta.

She lived, dear Father, in Your Divine Will and became, under the influence of the Holy Spirit, similar to Your Son, who died on the cross due to His obedience.

She was a victim and a host welcome to You, thus contributing to the Redemption of mankind.

Her virtues of obedience, humility, love of Christ and to the Church urge us to ask You for the gift of her glorification on earth, so that Your glory may shine, and Your

kingdom of truth, justice and love may spread all over the world in the particular charisma of:

“Fiat voluntas tua sicut in coelo et in terra.”

We appeal to her merits to obtain from You, Holy Trinity, the particular grace for (add your intention) which we pray to You in Your Divine Will. Amen.

Three Glory be’s …

Our Father …

Our Lady, Queen of Saints, pray for us.
