Pope Francis Before Mass

Pope Francis preached in a recent homily that Lent is a time to adjust one’s life and get closer to the Lord by serving others. He spoke of hypocrisy saying, “What makes people hypocrites? They disguise themselves. . . as good people . . . making sure they are seen—they believe they are more righteous than others, they despise others. ‘Mah,’ they say, “I’m very Catholic, because my uncle was a great benefactor, my family is this, I’m that… I’ve learned… I know this bishop, this Cardinal, this priest… I am this or that…’ They think they are better than others. This is hypocrisy. The Lord says, ‘No, not that.’ No one is justified by himself. We all need to be justified. And the only one who justifies us is Jesus Christ.” Read it here: Pope Francis: Lent a Time to Adjust Your Life
