I express my closeness to the thousands of migrants, refugees in Libya: I never forget you; I hear your cries and pray for you. We are all responsibile for these our brothers and sisters, who have been victims of this serious situation for too many years. Let us #PrayTogether.
In the #GospelOfTheDay (Mk 10:46-52), the faith of Bartimaeus, the blind beggar, shines. He asks everything of the One who can do everything: “Have mercy on me". He doesn't ask for a favour,
but presents himself: he asks for mercy on his person, on his life.
Keep in mind on his feast day what Saint #JohnPaulII said to us: "Be vigilant so that nothing might separate us from the love of Christ: neither false slogans, nor erroneous ideologies, nor caving into the temptation to fall into compromises with what is not of God".
True freedom - freedom in Christ - does not seek personal interests, but is guided by love and is expressed in service to others, especially to the poor. Love makes us free, it leads us to choose and to do good, it motivates us to serve. #GeneralAudience
Today, thousands of children around the world are taking part in the campaign organized by #AidToTheChurchInNeed,praying the Rosary for unity and peace.Let us #PrayTogether with them to Our Lady with the same trust as these little ones have in our Heavenly Mother #ChildrenPraying
Dear brothers and sisters, have a good journey! May we be open to the Holy Spirit’s surprises, the grace of encounter, reciprocal listening and discernment, joyfully convinced that, even as we seek the Lord, He always comes with His love to meet us first. #Synod #ListeningChurch
Jesus asks us to immerse ourselves compassionately in the lives of those we meet as He has done with us. God is love and love is humble, it does not exalt itself, but descends like the rain that falls to the earth and brings life. #GospelOfTheDay (Mk 10:35-45)
That governments and all politicians work for the common good. Let them beware of listening only to the economic elite; may they be servants of those people who ask for land, shelter and work and a good life in harmony with all humanity and creation.
