Pope Francis sends a message to Kenneth Copeland Ministries
Start listening around the 28:00 minute mark. This is a video message from Pope Francis to a Texas Protestant group seeking Christian unity.
“All over the world there are families. Families who come together and families who separate themselves. We are kind of…Permit me to say, separated. Separated because, it’s sin that has separated us, all our sins. The misunderstandings through history.
It’s been a long road of sins that we all shared in. Who is to blame? We all share the blame. We have all sinned. There is only one who is blameless, the Lord. I am nostalgic, that this separation comes to an end and gives us communion. I am nostalgic of that embrace. That the Holy Scripture speaks of when Joseph’s Brothers began to starve from hunger they went to Egypt to buy so that they could eat. They had money, but they couldn’t eat the money. But there they found something more than food, they found their Brother.
All of us have currency. The currency of our culture. The currency of our heritage…and we all have diverse traditions. But we have to encounter one another as Brothers. We must cry together like Joseph did. These tears will unite us. The tears of love. I am speaking to you as a brother. With joy and nostalgia let us allow our yearning to grow, because this will propel us to find each other and to embrace one another. And together to worship Jesus Christ as the only Lord of history.”
