Sunday Is a Day to Say â€˜God Thank You for Life,â€™ Says Pope
September 05, 2018. Greets Arabic-speaking Pilgrims this at General Audience Centered on 4th Commandment
Sunday is a day to say to God “thank you for life.”
Pope Francis gave this reminder to Arabic-speaking Christians, especially those from the Middle East, during his Sept. 5, 2018, weekly General Audience in St. Peter’s Square.
After his catechesis on the Commandment to remember and keep holy the Sabbath Day, the Holy Father said, “Dear brothers and sisters, remember always that the day of rest for us Christians is a day of blessing and of thanksgiving.”
“It’s the day to say to God: thank you for life, for your mercy and for all your gifts,” he said, adding: “May the Lord bless you!”
