Vatican City, Jun 6, 2016 / 10:31 am
Meekness of heart is not foolishness, Pope Francis said Monday, but rather "the capacity to be deep and to understand the greatness of God, and worship Him."
The Pope reflected during his homily Monday on the Beatitudes as steps that take us towards God.
The Pope's homily came during the June 6 Mass at the Casa Santa Martha residence, Vatican Radio reports. He reflected on the Sermon on the Mount and the Beatitudes as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew.
Pope Francis encouraged reflection on the beatitude, "Blessed are the Meek," saying that the opposite of meekness "always causes enmities and wars."
