I wish you all a fruitful Lenten journey, and I ask you to pray for me and my collaborators as we begin our week of Spiritual Exercises.3 days ago
Only those able to acknowledge their mistakes and ask pardon receive understanding and forgiveness from others.4 days ago
The message of Jesus is troubling and disturbs us because it challenges worldly religious power and stirs consciences.5 days ago
In our daily lives we experience the tenderness of God who lovingly saves us from our sins, fears and anxieties.6 days ago
When we confess our sins with humility and sincerity, we receive forgiveness and are reunited with God and our brothers and sisters.1 week ago
We need the Holy Spirit to transmit the faith. We cannot do it alone.1 week ago
I feel deep pain for the many children torn from their families and forced to become child soldiers. This is a tragedy!1 week ago

LORD of the Harvest,

BLESS young people with the gift of courage to respond to your call. Open their hearts to great ideals, to great things. 

INSPIRE all of your disciples to mutual love and giving – 

for vocations blossom in the good soil of faithful people.

INSTILL those in religious life, parish ministries, and families with the confidence and grace to invite others to embrace the bold and noble path of a life consecrated to you.

UNITE us to Jesus through prayer and sacrament, so that we may cooperate with you in building your reign of mercy and truth, of justice and peace. Amen.

                                                – Pope Francis
