At this morning’s General Audience address in St Peter’s Square, Pope Francis spoke again of the virtue of courage, a theme which seems to be developing in his teaching:

General Audience, 10 April 2013
“The temptation to put God to one side, to put ourselves at the centre is ever-present and the experience of sin wounds our Christian life, our being children of God. This is why we must have the courage of faith, we must resist being led to the mentality that tells us: “There is no need for God, He is not that important for you”. It is the exact opposite: only by behaving as children of God, without being discouraged by our falls, can we feel loved by Him, our life will be new, inspired by serenity and joy. God is our strength! God is our hope!”
