Those who do not want to see the light

· At the Angelus the Pontiff speaks about the drama of inner blindness ·

Pope Francis warned Christians of the risk of falling into “inner blindness” which closes the heart to the grace and light of God. He said this at the Angelus on Sunday, 30 March, in St Peter's Square, speaking about the Gospel passage of the healing of the man born blind. There he underlined that the life of believers “similar to that of the doctors of the lay: from the height of our pride we judge others, and even the Lord”. He then invited us to examine our conscience beginning with chapter 9 in the Gospel of John: “read this story of the blind man who gained his sight and of the presumptuous believers who drown in their blindness”.
