Speaking to general audience on Saturday, Pope Francis said: “Jesus is truly the extreme commitment that God has made toward us…this is the greatest commitment of God.” “The Father will give us everything we need” the Pope added.
The Holy Father said that the Gospels tells us how through Jesus, God totally committed himself to restoring hope to the poor and those deprived of their dignity, as well as to strangers, the sick, prisoners and sinners.
The Pontiff then went on to expound the concept ‘commitment’ which he defined as to “assume a responsibility, a task toward someone; and it also means the style, the attitude of fidelity and dedication, of special attention with which we carry forward this task.
“Each day we are asked to commit ourselves in the simple things we do, such as prayer, work and study, as well as in sports or free time,” the Pope said. “To commit ourselves, then, means to put our good will and our efforts to improve life,” he added.
