‘Lord, throw a banana peel in front of them’

“Even our life can become like that, even our life. And sometimes, I confess something to you, when I have seen a Christian, a Christian of that kind, with a weak heart, not firm, not fixed on the rock—Jesus – and with such rigidness on the outside, I ask the Lord: ‘But Lord, throw a banana peel in front of them, so that they will take a good fall, and feel shame that they are sinners, and so encounter You, [and realize] that You are the Saviour. Many times a sin will make us feel shame, and make us encounter the Lord, Who pardons us, as the sick who were there and went to the Lord for healing.”

I love Pope Francis.
Here’s the whole thing :)
God bless you


  1. I don’t disagree with what he says here, but I remain perplexed as to why he thinks rigidity is a bigger problem today than wishy-washiness.

  2. Dear As a Little Child,
    The title of the post caught my attention. The concern you have for others is evident. I will pray for you. God bless,
