The Holy Father Francis has resumed the general audiences, from the Paul VI Hall, after the break during the month of July. In this way, the health protocol for the COVID pandemic is maintained, keeping a chair of separation between one person and another.

The Pope continued the catechesis on the Letter of St. Paul to the Galatians, which he had begun before the summer, once the cycle of catechesis on prayer had ended.

"This passage from the Letter to the Galatians"Francis began, "shows us that St. Paul understood his life as a call to evangelize, a mission to which he dedicated himself with all his strength. For the Apostle, the Gospel is the KerygmaThe Gospel is the proclamation of Christ's death and resurrection, the paschal mystery in which God fulfills his promises to Israel and offers salvation to all people. By accepting the Gospel we are reconciled with God our Father, we become his children and heirs of eternal life".

The Pope invites us to be faithful to the one Gospel, faithful to the way through identification with Jesus Christ: "Therefore, when Paul sees that the Galatian community is in danger of giving ear to false preachers and turning away from the way of faith, he invites them to remain faithful to the one Gospel, which is not observance of the law, but configuration to the Person of Jesus Christ, who frees us from death and sin".
