On June 16, the pope spoke at the opening of the gathering of Rome about "The Joy Of Love." According to the article in America, he affirmed the need "to stay in touch with the movement of the Spirit in discernment." This means "listening to what God is saying within our given circumstances". Discernment does not stop with a description of situations...it always goes beyond and succeeds in seeing behind every face, every story, and every situation an opportunity and a possibility."
"Discerning then, means listening to the voice of the Spirit and facing our unfolding history with its needs and challenges, and - above all - with an eye on individual persons and their concrete lives."
There is more to come tomorrow.
