So it is not only the prayer of Peter and John, who found themselves in danger; it is the prayer of the whole community, because what the two apostles experience does not only touch them but the whole Church. This I would say is the first wonder that occurs when the believers are tested because of their faith: their unity is strengthened rather than compromised because it is supported by an indestructible prayer.

The Church must not fear the persecutions that it will undergo in its history but trust always, as Jesus did at Gethsemane in the presence, help and power of God, invoked in prayer.

Let us take a further step: what does the Christian community ask of God in this moment of trial? Acts , that is, it asks that it not lose the courage of faith, the courage to proclaim the faith. It is the invocation of the Creator: we know that everything comes from him, that everything is in his hands. This is the knowledge that gives the community certainty and courage: everything comes from him, everything is in his hands.

It then acknowledges how God has acted in history — so it begins with creation and then continues through history — how he has been near to his people, showing himself to be a God who cares for man, who has not retreated, who does not abandon man, his creature; and here Psalm 2 is explicitly cited, in the light of which the difficult situation that the Church is currently experiencing is interpreted. The Psalm about the Messiah already says this prophetically, and throughout history this rebellion of the powerful against the power of God is characteristic. What had happened was read in the light of Christ, who is the key for understanding persecution too; the cross, which is always the key to the resurrection.

Common English Bible Acts of the Apostles

The community then adds that this proclamation be accompanied by the hand of God, that healings, signs, wonders might occur cf. At the end of the prayer, St.

The place trembled, that is, the faith has the power to transform the world. We too, dear brothers and sisters, must know how to bring the events of our daily lives into our prayer, to find their deeper meaning. As with the first Christian community, prayer helps us to interpret personal and collective history according to the right and faithful perspective, that of God. And we too want to renew the request for the gift of the Holy Spirit, that warms the heart and illumines the mind, to see how the Lord realizes what we plead for according to his will of love and not according to our ideas.

Guided by the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ, we will be able to face every situation of life with serenity, courage and joy and boast with St. I thank the choirs for their praise of God in song. I would like to express my cordial gratitude for all of the well-wishes I have received for the seventh anniversary of my election, and for my birthday. I ask you to sustain me always with your prayers, so that, with the help of the Holy Spirit, I can persevere in my service to Christ and the Church.

My thoughts go out also to the sick, to the newlyweds and to the young people present, especially the many students who have come from various regions. Respond to these words with joy and love!
