While the Jubilee might be over, Pope Francis hasn’t stopped talking about mercy, telling faithful Wednesday that the works of mercy of counseling the doubtful and instructing the ignorant, are rooted in a deep faith, and are things we can do every day.
“In certain moments doubts come to everyone! Doubts that touch the faith, in a positive sense, are a sign that we want to know God, Jesus, and the mystery of his love for us better and more deeply,” the Pope said Nov. 23.
Because of this, he said it’s good to ask ourselves questions about the faith, because they push us to deepen in it.
“Doubts, then, can also be overcome,” he said, pointing to catechesis as “an important path” that helps to quell doubts. With catechesis, “the announcement of faith comes to meet us in the concreteness of personal and communitarian life.”
