Do not fear final judgment, says Pope (ANSA) - Vatican City, December 11 - The faithful should not fear God's final judgment because they will not be alone, Pope Francis said Wednesday. During his general audience at the Vatican, the pope said that concerns about the last judgment often create "a sense of fear". However, the Gospels make clear that if one considers that the last judgment allows the faithful to "embrace the fullness of God," then the fear disappears, said the pope.
