Pope Francis: Our faith is based on Christ, not 'persuasive words'
By Ann Schneible
Vatican City, Nov 3, 2014 / 11:43 am (CNA/
EWTN News).- The “rock” of our faith is not found
in “wise and persuasive words,” Pope Francis
said, but rather in the “living word” which is
Christ's death and resurrection.
Human history culminating in Christ's coming
was the main focus of the Pope's homily for Mass
on Nov. 3, celebrated in Saint Peter's Basilica on
behalf of all cardinals and bishops who have died Pope Francis celebrates Mass in St. Peter's Basilica for all cardiover the last twelve months.
nals and bishops who died in the last year, Nov. 3, 2014. Credit:
Jesus' death and resurrection, said Pope Fran- Daniel Ibáñez/CNA.
cis, “represents the culmination of the entire journey: it is the event of the resurrection which responds to
the people of God's long search, to the search of every man and all of humanity.”
“Each of us is invited to enter into this event,” he continued. Like Mary, the women, and the centurion,
we are first called to be before the Cross. There, we are to “listen to Jesus' cry, and his last breath, and
finally the silence,” which continues until Holy Saturday. After that, the Holy Father continued, “we are
called to go to the tomb,” and hear the words: “He is risen. He is not here”.
The answer, the “foundation, the rock” lies here, Pope Francis said, “in the living word of the Cross
and Resurrection of Jesus,” not in “wise persuasive arguments.”
The Holy Father recalled the words of Saint Paul, saying if Jesus is “not risen, then our faith is empty
and inconsistent. However, since he is Risen, in fact, and He is the Resurrection, therefore our faith is full
of truth and eternal life.”
“Thanks to the Word of God,” the Pope said, reflecting on the readings for the Mass of suffrage, “this
celebration is illuminated by faith in the Resurrection.”
“All of Divine Revelation is the fruit of dialogue between God and His people,” the Holy Father said,
and “faith in the Resurrection is tied to this dialogue,” accompanying God's people throughout history.
It is no wonder, he added, that a mystery as decisive and “superhuman” as the Resurrection necessitated the lengthy journey ending with Jesus Christ.
Jesus can say he is the “resurrection and the life,” Pope Francis continued, because in Him the mystery is not only fully revealed, it is actualized, and for the first time becomes a “definitive reality.”
Concluding his homily, Pope Francis recalled the cardinals and bishops who have died over the past
year.
“Our prayer is enriched by sentiments, memories, gratitude for the witness of persons we knew, with
whom we shared the service of the Church,” he said.
Pope Francis closed his homily by entrusting the departed to the “gaze of the Heavenly Father” and
the intercession of Mary.
“Together with the faithful who have served here on earth, may they delight in the Joy of the New Jerusalem.”

FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK: My Dear Sisters and Brothers and Visitors:
Following along from last week’s bulletin with reflections on World peace, I want to share this article on the Rite of Peace within our
mass. I think you will find that many of us are not actually taking part in that rite in the way it was intended as part of the mass.
See what you think.
So, what do you think? Can we do our hellos and chatting before and after the mass and extend the Peace of
Christ to each other during the mass?
Peace be with you, Fr. David
