‘Resignation Is Not a Christian Virtue,’ Pope Reminds Pilgrims From Middle East, Lebanon, Holy Land

October 11, 2017. Reminds Arabic-speaking Pilgrims That Our Hope Is Based on Certainty of Christ’s Return

“I give a warm welcome to the Arabic-speaking pilgrims, particularly those from Lebanon, the Holy Land, and the Middle East!”, said Pope Francis during his General Audience of October 11, 2017.

This morning’s General Audience was held at 9:30 in St. Peter’s Square where the Holy Father Francis met with groups of pilgrims and faithful from Italy and from all over the world.

The Pope spoke in Italian, translated immediately into Arabic by one of his collaborators in the Roman Curia: “Our hope is based on the certainty of Christ’s return and being ready to receive Him.

“Therefore,” he said, “we cannot let the events take their course with pessimism, as if history was a train that lost control.”

“Resignation is not a Christian virtue.”

Pope Francis concluded, praying: “May the Lord bless you all and protect you from evil!”
