Pope at Mass: God asks of us an open heart full of compassion
By Robin Gomes
In his homily, Pope Francis reflected on the day’s Gospel from St. Mark where the disciples are worried about the shortage of bread in the boat where there was also Jesus. The Pope pointed out that the concern for a material good had got the better of them. Jesus rebukes them that their hearts are hardened and they cannot understand. “Have you eyes and cannot see, have you ears and cannot hear?” he asks them, reminding them of the multiplication of five loaves to feed five thousand, with many baskets full of fragments left over.
In this episode, the Pope pointed to the difference between a “hardened heart”, like that of the disciples and a “compassionate heart”, like that of the Lord.
Compassion is what the Lord wants in us, the Pope said, adding: “Mercy I want, not sacrifice.”
