Pope Francis releases emotionally inspiring video that will hit Americans hard




Pope Francis’ February prayer intention video has been posted to YouTube.

The 60-second video features Pope Francis’ narration as scenes of society ignoring people in need are displayed.

A young man shivers in the cold as people are frozen in place, walking from him and going about their day.

Pope Francis begins to speak and suddenly those people surround the man and offer him warmth, food and a hot drink.

“We live in cities that build skyscrapers and shopping centers and strike big real estate deals,” the pontiff states. “But they abandon a part of themselves to marginal settlements on the periphery.

“The result of this situation is that great sections of the population are excluded and marginalized: without a job, without options, without a way out.

“Don’t abandon them.”

Pope Francis continues: “Pray with me for all those who are afflicted, especially the poor, refugees, and marginalized, may find welcome and comfort in our communities.”

The video comes shortly after U.S. President Donald Trump decided to move forward with building a wall to physically separate the United States from Mexico and after he initiated a temporary immigration ban that has affected many refugees. Many have dubbed these acts as racist and hard-hearted.

Archbishop Angelo Becciu said Wednesday the Vatican was concerned with Trump’s move.

“We are builders of bridges, far less of walls,” he explained, “and all Christians should emphatically reaffirm this message.”

    Give it up. We aren’t falling for it. The church has been infiltrated since the 2nd Vstican Council. The time is right, only now do the powers say that Islam will be injected into every corner of the world.

    The civilized western world is NOT going to fall for the “refuge” claims.

    True we are to build bridges but when no one uses them walls get built. I am for helping my fellow man but that’s not the job of the government. Their job is for the safety and well being of their own country first and once all of its citizens are taken care of then it can lend a hand to others outside their boarders. There are over 85 million poor and homeless in the world. My country taking in 1 million will not fix the problem it only makes our problem worse. Those countries with these poor need to figure it out. I give money to the Catholic campaigns and have no idea where it goes and I do not question it either. The Catholic Church needs to do more and be seen as the leader in helping these people the Pope refers to instead of passing the buck.

    IN THE COURSE OF TIME, ONE MAY FALL INTO THE TRAP WHICH THOSE BORN AND GONE AHEAD OF THIS GENERATION PRAYERFULLY AND PAINSTAKINGLY AVOIDED . . . . THE TRAP OF INDIFFERENCE OR LUKEWARMNESS. . . . . WE NOW SAY, “BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER” AS EVER, NO. THIS IS NOT TRUE. MY LATE MOTHER – WHILE ALWAYS EMPHASIZING “FAMILY UNITY” – ALWAYS EMPHASIZED “CHARITY” AS DISTINGUISHED FROM “PHILANTROPHY”. THIS MEANS CHARITY TOWARD ALL. . . . REGARDLESS OF CREED OR RACE. THUS, I WANT TO PUT ON RECORD WHAT SHE SAID, AND I SINGLE HER OUT AS THE SOURCE OF THESE WORDS, “BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER BUT BLOOD MAY STAIN AND WATER WILL CLEANSE”. HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCES IS CORRECT. WE NEED BRIDGES, NOT WALLS. . . OUR MOTHER, RETIRED HOME ECONOMICS TEACHER ESTERIA S. DE ALBAN (1917-2010) OF TUMAUINI, ISABELA, PHILIPPINES WAS ALWAYS CONSISTENT WITH HER MESSAGE WHICH WE, HER 8 CHILDREN, CONSIDER AS VERY WHOLESOME. THANKS AND MABUHAY!
