On Sunday Pope Francis said the new and unique perspective offered by Christianity is an attitude of love, rather than revenge, which God continues to adopt even in the face of our sins and errors.
"Here is the great novelty of Christianity: a God who, though disappointed by our sins and our errors, does not go back on his word, he does not stop and above all does not take revenge!" the Pope said Oct. 8.
"God loves, he doesn't take revenge! He loves, and waits to forgive us," Francis said, explaining that like the Israelites in salvation history, God calls each of us to form a relationship, and alliance, with him.
And "the urgency of responding with good fruits to the call of the Lord, who calls us to become his vineyard, helps us to understand what is new and unique in Christianity," he said.
