On Wednesday Pope Francis said having total faith and trust in God means recognizing that he always knows and wants what is best for us, even if it's hard to accept because it doesn't align with our own plans.
Wednesday, Pope Francis talked about what it means to have total faith and trust in God, acknowledging that he knows what is best, and always wants what is best for us, even if it is often difficult to accept.
"Trusting in God means to enter into his designs without demanding anything, even accepting that his salvation and his help should come to us in a different way from our expectations," he said Jan. 25.
The Pope's catechesis for the general audience in the Pope Paul VI hall centered on the story of Judith in the Old Testament, a woman who was "a great heroine," he said, and an excellent example of the virtues of faith, hope and trust.
