A Warning Against Slowly Slipping Into Worldliness, at Heart of Pope’s Morning Homily

February 13, 2020. At Santa Marta, Francis Reminds Only Entrusting Ourselves to God Can Straighten Our Sorted Course

Words of caution: be careful not to slowly slip into worldliness, and if you start to, pray to the Lord so His grace and love give you a new start…

According to Vatican News, Pope Francis stressed this during his daily morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta as he reflected on today’s First Reading which focused on the fall of King Solomon.

Recalling today’s reading, Francis observed that generally this falling toward worldliness is not something that happens one day to the next, but happens little by little over time.

“Think of this sin of Solomon, think of how that wise Solomon fell, blessed by the Lord, with all the inheritances of his father David, how he slowly fell, anesthetized towards this idolatry, towards this worldliness and the kingdom was taken away,” he said.

Lamenting the sad gradual fall of Solomon, Francis noted that only God saves us and stops us from this, if we turn to him.

Pope Francis concluded, giving the following invitation: “Let’s ask the Lord for the grace to understand when our heart begins to weaken and slip, to stop us.”

“It will be His grace and His love that stop us,” the Pontiff said, “if we pray to Him.”
