Pope Francis “there is joy in the hearts of those who possess the leaven of the Holy Spirit, even when they face problems and difficulties”. Homily
Pope Francis contrasts the leaven of the Pharisees with the Holy Spirit’s leaven which leads Christians to reach out to others in the hope of “finding the inheritance” they have been promised.
During his homily on Friday at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis reflected both on the First Reading and on the Gospel of the Day. He contrasted the “leaven” of the Pharisees to the leaven of the Holy Spirit which leads to embracing the “inheritance” which the Lord left to everyone. Leaven of hypocrisy
