Jesus' glory is not found in the acclaim or applause of the world, but in the act of suffering and dying out of love – the same love demanded of everyone, Pope Francis said Wednesday.
"True glory is the glory of love, because it is the only one that gives life to the world," the pope said at the general audience April 17.
"Certainly, this glory is the opposite of worldly glory, which comes when one is admired, praised, acclaimed," he continued. "The glory of God, on the other hand, is paradoxical: no applause, no audience. At the center there is not the ego, but the other."
On the eve of the Easter Triduum, Pope Francis spoke about the glory found in Jesus' Passion and death, done out of love for the Father and asked people to reflect on the source of their own "glory."
