Let us #PrayTogether, asking the Holy Spirit that the seeds sown during the #ApostolicJourney to #Budapest and #Slovakia might bear good fruit in the People of God.
Any time is fitting for the message of peace; in no situation is God’s grace ever lacking. #PeaceDay
Saints are witnesses whom we venerate and who in thousands of different ways bring us to Jesus Christ, the only Lord and Mediator between God and humanity. They remind us that holiness can blossom even in our lives, however weak and marked by sin. #SaintMatthew
Witnesses do not lose themselves in words, but rather they bear fruit. They do not complain about others and the world, but start with themselves. They remind us that God is not to be proven, but shown; not announced with proclamations but witnessed by example.
Those to be served above all are: those in need of receiving who can’t give anything back. In welcoming those on the margins, the neglected, we welcome Jesus, for He is there. And in the little one, in the poor person we serve, we too receive God’s tender embrace. #GospelOfTheDay
In the #GospelOfTheDay (Mk 9:20-37), the Lord overturns the criteria about what truly matters: greatness and success in God’s eyes are measured by service. Not on what someone has, but on what someone gives. Do you want to be first? Serve.
Hope would have us recognize that there is always a way out, that we can always redirect our steps, that we can always do something to solve our problems. #SeasonofCreation #LaudatoSi’
From our gift the life and health of others, sick and suffering, may spring forth, helping to reinforce a culture of help, giving, hope and life. Society needs these concrete gestures of solidarity and generous love, to ensure the understanding that life is something sacred.#WMDD
#Catechesis is not an abstract communication, the memorization of theoretical knowledge. We must insist on pointing to the heart of catechesis: Jesus Christ, the Risen One, loves you and will never abandon you!
I would like to add my own personal thanks to the thousands of catechists throughout the world. I accompany you with my prayer and with my Apostolic Blessing.
A society is all the more human to the degree that it cares effectively for its most frail and suffering members, in a spirit of fraternal love. Let us strive to achieve this goal, so that no one will feel alone or abandoned. #PatientSafetyDay
We have severely harmed the Earth, our common home. Yet we have reasons for hope. The effects of the present imbalance can only be reduced by our decisive action, here and now. #SeasonofCreation #OzoneDay
I gave thanks to God for having allowed me to accomplish this #ApostolicJourney. I am grateful to all who, in different ways, have cooperated, above all by their prayers. I carry you in my heart.
Contemplating the Sorrowful Mother, may we open ourselves to a faith that becomes compassion, a faith that identifies with those in need. A faith that imitates God’s style, quietly relieving the suffering of our world and watering the soil of history with salvation.
#OurLadyOfSorrows, at the foot the cross, did not run away from her grief. She remains with tears on her face, but with the faith of one who knows that in her Son, God transforms suffering and triumphs over death. #ApostolicJourney
For our life to be great, we need love and heroism. If we look to the crucified Jesus, we find both boundless love and the courage to give one’s life to the utmost, without half-measures. #ApostolicJourney
Today, being really original and revolutionary means rebelling against the culture of the ephemeral, going beyond shallow instincts and momentary pleasures, and choosing to love with every fibre of your being, for the rest of your life. #ApostolicJourney
Do not be afraid to go out to encounter the marginalized. You will find that you are going out to meet Jesus. He awaits you wherever there is need, not comfort; wherever service rules, not power. Those are the places where he will be found. #ApostolicJourney
The cross demands a limpid testimony. For the cross is not a flag to wave, but the pure source of a new way of living: that of the Gospel, that of the Beatitudes. #ApostolicJourney https://t.co/dT4cT5kkWJ
The cross was an instrument of death, yet it became the source of life. It was a horrendous sight, yet it revealed to us the beauty of God’s love. That is why, in today’s feast, the people of God venerate the cross and the Liturgy celebrates it. #ExaltationOfTheCross
