    Santo Padre, me preocupa sobremanera la comunión Eucarística en las manos, porque se presta para profanaciones. En mi parroquia una señora contaba sentada, esperando que la atendieran en la oficina parroquial, que había recibido la " tortillita" ( pan ácimo consagrado en la Eucaristía de Comunidades Neocatecumenales ), se la había llevado a la casa, le convido al marido que no había ido a la Eucaristía. Algunos agentes pastorales se enteraron y avisaron al párroco quien habló con la mujer. Hoy sábado 25 de febrero de 1017, fui a la Santa Eucarístia, el sacerdote distribuyó la Santa Hostia a las personas y un hombre la tomo en la mano, se fue caminando con ella y una vez sentado se la comíó. Viendo estos casos y leyendo en los noticieros católicos que casi todos los días suceden profanaciones a la Santa Hostia, o en los templos, donde la falta de respeto al Señor grita al Cielo. Me puse averiguar al respecto y encontré que lo que hay al respecto, es un indulto, que el Papa Pablo VI, nunca estuvo de acuerdo con la comunión en la mano. Mi pregunta es esta. ¿ Es posible suprimir la comunión en la Mano?, da mucha pena el trato que el Señor Dios recibe.
    En el Señor.

    Holy Father,

    God bless you and keep you, Your Holiness! Much to do, Your Holiness.

    I returned to the Church all-in when the Spirit picked Your Holiness as Peter's successor. You are a magnificent and God-driven leader. Jesus was kind and humble; he created a minimalist and lean bureaucracy for us, His Church. I am now very, very worried for the United States, Holy Father, for the apparent chastisement we in the USA have brought on ourselves, for what our Country stands for to and in the world, and, now, most especially for my children, my grandsons, their futures, and all our futures. I trust in God and trust you completely. What should we do?

    Pray for us, as I know you do, Your Holiness. Guide us, our Shepherd.

    No reply is solicited or expected, Your Holiness.

    Very respectfully, and with deepest respect and complete love,

    Best,

    Dick; a sheep, or maybe an old ram?

    Hi, I am a theater teacher in a public high school in the United States. I have been teaching yoga poses in class along with other physical exercises as a means of stretching and warming up the body. I am concerned if I am now teaching something against my Catholic religion. Secondly, I started working with a Vocal coach to integrate voice and movement exercises in classroom exercises. These exercises use the American vowels oo, oh, ah, eh, we as well as bija mantras of lum,vum,rum,yum, & hum, and words such as soothe, flow, play,...the vocal coach comes from a Catholic University and I never really thought about it, until someone mentioned it. Am I doing something harmful or wrong? I read over 30 articles and received conflicting information. Thank you Holy Father.
    Love,

    Whenever the question "Why does God permit evil?" The answer is always, "For greater grace." I don't understand this. I thought God is Love and all the good things and blessings God bestows on us are given, freely and unconditionally. Implied in the answer to the question is a prerequisite for receiving more grace. If God's grace is given freely, being victimized by evil acts shouldn't be part of the arrangement.

    Pope Francis in your smile is God's love for all the world believers and nonbelievers alike. You are the most learned in these matters. I turn to you for an answer I can understand.
    Thank you and may you always walk with Jesus love.

    Hola Padre, soy de Argentina al igual que usted y en el colegio leí un libro escrito por uno de sus alumnos del colegio: Jorge Millia (solo para contárselo). mi pregunta es como puedo lidiar con mi padre. Casi todos los días peleamos con él tanto mi mamá como mi hermano y yo, debido a que él está desempleado hace más de diez años, no quiere buscar trabajo y todo el día está durmiendo, en la computadora o en el celular. La única que trabaja es mi madre, y cuando no estoy estudiando y puedo, yo le ayudo. Hace unos meses él consiguió un trabajo como portero pero lo dejó porque según él se cansaba mucho. Parece no entender que nosotros también nos cansamos pero igual seguimos con nuestras actividades, especialmente mi madre, que duerme muy pocas horas y eso le está afectando su salud. Quisiera saber cómo podemos tratar con mi papá, cómo podemos hacer para que cambie de mentalidad y decida trabajar. Ya intentamos decirle que vaya a un psicólogo pero se pone violento y comienza a gritar, lo cual nos asusta. En esos gritos gritos nos dice que sabe que nos decepcionó, o sino que nosotros estamos buscando que él se suicide.
    Todo el día nos está dando órdenes, diciendo que no nos aburramos, que hagamos algo, trabajos de la casa, o con mi mamá, pero el se acuesta y ve televisión. El otro problema es que mira pornografía en el celular. En la computadora ya no porque lo bloqueamos, pero el celular no podemos. Cada cierto tiempo mi madre lo confronta sobre ese aspecto y él alega que es algo normal en los hombres y que ella se debería conformar, y agradecer que es lo único que él hace.
    Otra vez lo repito creo, me gustaría saber cómo tratar con él, y cómo hacer para no sentir que lo odio y que quisiera que mis padres se separaran, porque sé que no quiero eso, aún lo quiero y me preocupo por él, pero no sé como cambiar la situación en la que estamos.
    Desde ya muchas gracias por este espacio para escribir mis pensamientos y dudas. Espero poder leer una respuesta que me ayude, y espero con ansias la publicación del libro.

    Hello dear Pope, it is nice that a site like this exists and I look forward to the release of the book. I want to ask if it is a sin or not to read books or watch films about the relationship between two people from the same gender. I would like to know what is the opinion of the Church about this, since I think Catholics are against this kind of relationship. I myself am straight but for some reason find it intriguing, fun, alluring and enjoyable to read this kind of books. I wolud appreciate it if you could answer this question. Thank you very much. V.

    My youngest daughter who is 35 has never been married has met someone and they are planning their wedding in May 2017. My daughter was brought up Catholic and then strayed away for awhile but now that she is settling down has committed herself to live in her Catholic faith. I also have 2 other daughters, one is engaged and living with her fiancé and making a home for his children, the other daughter is in a relationship with another woman. Even though my husband and I would like to see all our daughters live a better life style they are adults and I have no control over them anymore. The daughter getting married has told her sister's because she now doesn't agree with their life choices that they are not invited to her wedding. She loves them but she said if she invites them it's as if she agrees with their relationships. It has put our family in real turmoil. I was wondering how you might see and feel about this situation. She has made her own mistakes before meeting her current fiancé but now wants a better life which my husband and I are very happy about. I'm not happy at how rigid and judging she's become. It's not supposed to be our place to judge one another and we are hoping and praying they will ask for forgiveness and change their lives to live in God's plan. They were all brought up in the Catholic church. I would just like to get your feelings about this situation.. Thank you most holy father for your time.
    Blessings, Deborah Schwarz
    Hello Father, I do not know much of Catholicism as a whole, however I am very aware of what some have done in the name of the Catholic Church. I myself am not Catholic but a follower of Asatru, or norse paganism if you prefer. I am one of the many Universalist Asatru Followers meaning I fully accept any and all who would care to be a part of the faith.

    That being said, there are some who try to use it as an excuse to be racist or militant towards others beliefs.

    I very much would like to ask you one question now that I have said my piece.

    Could you speak on the subject of the 10 and 11th century removal of pagan holy grounds and replacement with churches? This was common practice at the time, however it caused much pain for those trying to keep the faith of their ancestors alive, and as a reconstructionist religion, it has made our job much harder with the loss of artifacts.

    This of course would help unify the peacefully members of both faiths once more, just as in the past when norse pagans and catholics traded freely, and were (more often than not) allies.

    Thank you for your valuable time.
    Anthony Zaccone.
