Pope Francis: Prayer is a peace-maker

Speaking at his morning mass, Pope Francis explains how Jesus teaches us to pray and say “father.” We cannot pray with enemies in our heart, with brothers and enemies in our heart we cannot pray. I realize that this is difficult with people saying to me: “Father, I cannot say Father, I just can’t” and I see their point. People also say “I cannot say “Our” because this person did this to me and these people should go to hell, they are not my parents.” And this too is not easy. But Jesus promised us the Holy Spirit, it is He who teaches us, from within our hearts, how to say “Our Father” and thereby make peace with our enemies.
