Pope at Audience: true believers intercede for the world
Pope Francis continues his cycle of catechesis on prayer at the Wednesday General Audience, focusing on the biblical figure of Moses.
….. The best way to describe how Moses prayed is the word “intercession”, said the Pope. He explained that Moses’s faith in God is “completely at one with his sense of fatherhood towards his people. Scripture habitually depicts him with his hands outstretched towards God, as if to form a bridge between heaven and earth with his own person”.
True believers, said the Pope, cultivate this sort of prayer: “even if they experience the shortcomings of people and their distance from God, in prayer they do not condemn them, they do not reject them”. The intercessory attitude is proper to the saints who, in imitation of Jesus, are “bridges” between God and His people, he added.
