MORNING MEDITATION IN THE CHAPEL OF THE
20 April 2013
(by L'Osservatore Romano, Weekly ed. in English, n.

A Church of Christians free from the temptation of murmuring
against Jesus, and most of all free “from the temptation of scandal” is a
consolidated Church that walks and grows on the path pointed out by Christ. The
Pope spoke about this in his homily on Saturday morning, 20 April.
He asked those present Mass in the Chapel of the Domus Sanctae
Marthae to pray for the Church. Those present included about 20 volunteers
working in the paediatric clinic of Santa Marta in the Vatican and many
families. Among the concelebrants were: Bishop Antonius Lambertus Maria Hurkmans
of ’s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands, and his Auxiliary and Vicar General,
Bishop Robertus Gerardus Leonia Maria Mutsaerts.
