Pope Francis: It is crucial to protect a child’s natural inclination to trust in God’s love

(CNA/EWTN News) Pope Francis opened this Wednesday's general audience by apologizing for unspecified scandals that have recently arisen in the Vatican. Pope Francis did not specify the nature of the scandals in his catechesis. When asked by journalists which scandals were being implied, Holy See press office director Fr. Federico Lombardi said he would not speculate if the Pope himself did not. The central theme of Pope Francis' October 14 address pertained to “promises we make to children,” namely: those promises which affect children's expectations about life, their faith in human beings, and “their ability to understand God's name as a blessing.”
