Via CNA:

In his Sunday Angelus address Pope Francis pointed to the authority with which Jesus preached, saying that his words in the Gospel aren’t aimed to limit, but rather liberate us from evil and worldly spirits.

“The Gospel is the word of life: it does not oppress people, (but) on the contrary it frees those who are enslaved by so many evil spirits in this world: vanity, the attachment to money, pride, sensuality,” the Pope told pilgrims present in St. Peter’s Square Feb. 1.

What the Gospel does, he said, is it “changes the heart, the Gospel changes the heart! It changes life; it transforms the inclination to evil to resolutions of good.”
