Pope: "Jesus alone should suffice in the Churches journey"



"Jesus alone" is all that is given to the Church of all times and must suffice in our journey. This was Pope Benedict XVIs message this morning in comments before the Angelus prayer in St Peters Square, reflecting on the Gospel story of the Transfiguration of Jesus, which dominates the liturgy of this second Sunday of Lent. His is the only voice we must listen to, explained Benedict XVI, the only one who in travelling to Jerusalem, gifts life. It is good to enjoy the consolations of the Lord, like Peter, the Pope added, but the Transfiguration reminds us that the joys God planted in our lives are not points of arrival, rather lights that He gives us on our earthly pilgrimage, because "Jesus alone" is all that is given to the Church of all times and must suffice in our journey.
