  • Well, I guess the reason for the Pope's message is to demonstrate charity and a little compassion to those that are economically challenged and unfortunate or those that are in the lowest sector of life. I think it is best to share our blessings and…
  • The human right to life is the right of every human being to be treated with respect and in equal terms with his fellowmen because he too is made from the image and likeness of God. And because of this nobody has the right to take the life of anothe…
  • I think the Muslims deserve our respect too because despite their differences with our faith, they are still our brothers and are humans just like you and me. So, I think a dialogue will really help with our dealings with Muslims and to come to term…
  • I think that it is very admirable to be grateful to Him for providing us with all our needs daily and helping us in the challenges that we meet everyday. It is advisable then to give thanks for everything that we experience. This include our failure…
  • An unanswered prayer is a way for the Lord God to say "wait" to us and that there may be other ways for our requests to be realized or that it is not yet the right time for a particular thing to be realized. We just have to believe in God and that h…
  • Yes I have heard of this conspiracy before but I have not gone deep into the details of it. I guess there is indeed a conspiracy about the death of this Pope but there is a shroud of Politics that only the insiders know about the truth of why he die…
  • I was strengthened first and foremost by my parents who taught how to pray and find inspiration and help from God. I was also taught by my teachers all throughout my school years to always have an undying belief in Christ Jesus and always sought for…
  • I think that the idea of euthanasia is very reasonable but no matter how valid it is in the law made by us humans, it is morally wrong. I think, we have absolutely no right to end the life of another whether he or she is weak and dying or not. It is…
  • Certainly and you explained your point really well my friend. I also believe that Jesus Christ, being the son of the Most High did not ask for divinity. He just did His mission on earth and that is to bring God's message of salvation to all of us an…
  • Abortion is absolutely a no-no for me because it is killing a living creation of God. It is in short a crime in the laws of man and also a crime in the laws of heaven and will be tantamount to a punishment in the rules of humans and when judgement t…
  • Well I definitely believe that heaven is for everyone regardless of belief and religion just as we live the life that our heavenly creator want us to do and follow. I also believe that no matter what religion we belong to, we believe and follow the …
  • Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Definitely He is true despite all those criticisms and lies which are placed in His holy name. It is matter of faith and how we grasp these beliefs and truths. I am in a stage where anything, written and oth…
  • Yes, indeed our families know what is best for us and sometimes we just do not understand them. In your case, it took time for you to realize that your family just did what they had to do to better your welfare. It is definitely not too late to say …
  • I also appreciate the example that he is trying to set for all of us people of all races and age groups and that is the example of humility and simplicity he is showing in spite of the power and authority he currently is having and enjoying as the P…
  • Yes I am familiar with the charitable work of the Church and am actually a member once of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul but am not active anymore and I also know of other missionary societies that to tend to do service to our unfortunate brothe…
  • You are very much welcome splinter, my friend. And yes it is also right to give thanks for things that we are not in control of because although they may seem negative at times, but they bring something positive as well despite its negative connotat…
  • Definitely true Francis. The Lord's Prayer is indeed one of the most effective prayers because it is the prayer that was personally taught by the Lord Jesus Christ to us. It is also best to pray for our family, our friends and our peers. We should a…
  • Yes we should always be thankful for life he gave us and the graces that He is giving to us day by day in our daily existence in this world. And yes, being a parent is a very wonderful thing and the time that we spent with them is a gift from God al…
  • Yes I guess she was able to have an audience with the Pope because she knew someone who can get her close to the Pope in trying to advance her anti-gay stand and to gather more attention in the press as what paf_2 have said. Steven H was also right …
  • The race of one is not the measurement of greatness and the Pope not being Latino is not at all an issue as this is only his race. No matter where the Pope came from, his background and specific take on things is not important just as long as he ser…
  • Wow, just imagine getting a call from the Pope himself and getting his fatherly advice directly from him. This must feel really uplifting and feels very much like talking with the Lord God himself as the Pope is his representative here on earth. Wha…
  • What about you guys? What are you thankful for? Come on, I think you may have something to be grateful for. A loved one, a good health, passing an exam, Passing the Board, or just thanking the Lord God how wonderful His creations are. We may also li…
  • Yes I practice to give thanks all the time just as I am doing right now. Thanking the good Lord that I am still able to wake up and witness His creation and serve Him once again. I also thank for His love and always looking out for me in all my tryi…
  • That is wonderful Francis. The Bible app in your android phone is the instrument that makes you closer to God even reading it twice a day can help you be reminded of God's teachings and His wonderful news of salvation for all of us. This though shou…
  • Can you cite your source my friend because I have not listened to such speech when he was in America? And if that were true then it could have been a mistake or maybe he meant another thing. Another possibility would be that his translation of his w…
  • That is wonderful lamanlupa. It is not too late to start once again and the Lord our God is always there for a loving and warm embrace. Yes, let us study more of his teachings and be enlightened each and every day of our lives. He is alive in His wo…
  • Yes I do because I believe unanswered prayers would mean that God has other plans for you and that is the reason why a particular prayer is not answered. It does not also mean that God does not listen to our prayers, it is just that certain prayers …
  • That is quite sad that they only call to Him in times of great need and forget to thank Him for the good things that have happened in their lives each and everyday of their lives. Personally, I do not forget to thank Him. When I wake up in the morni…
  • Thank you for the reply harpazzo22, Slate and StevenH. Personally, I read a chapter or two each and everyday and during travels, because I travel all the time because of my work, I have an app in my phone that contains the Bible so that I can carry …
  • Why do people hate such a lovable and kind Pope? I guess haters cannot be avoided if People are well known and this include the Pope. I think the Pope must do his best to turn these haters into lovers of the Pope. And I think this is not far from ha…
