Discipleship Tools - Growing as Christ's followers
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: God blesses us with his bounty not because we have earned his goodness, but because of who he is, namely, a God of mercy and compassion. How easy or hard is it for us to accept and embrace a God whose ways are sometimes not our ways? (Matthew 20:1-16a)

Pope Francis' 2015 speech to US Congress: still a challenge

(Vatican Radio) Two years ago this Sunday (September 24th), Pope Francis made history by delivering the first-ever address by a reigning Pope to the U.S. Congress.

In his wide-ranging address, the Holy Father touched on issues ranging from the need for politics to serve the common good and the importance of cooperation and solidarity, to the dangers of fundamentalism, the refugee crisis, abolition of the death penalty, the need for courageous acts to avert environmental deterioration, the evils of the arms trade, and threats to the family from within and without.
