Christians must be 'missionaries of hope,' Pope Francis says



True Christians are not sad or gloomy, but have the specific task of being bearers of hope and not only with their words, but with actions as simple as a smile or an act of charity.

Pope Francis: Familiarity with Jesus Sets us Free.......



Those who hear the Word of God and act on it: this is the concept of the family for Jesus, a concept of family that is “wider than that of the world.” That was the focus of Pope Francis’ homily at the morning Mass at the Casa Santa Marta.

Jesus not only Sows the Seed, He’ll Pull the Thorns.......

Pope Francis walked the Sanctuary's esplanade  to the "Capelinha", occasionally stopping to greet the young pilgrims or to collect their letters.

To Give to Others is to Give Hope. Pope Francis. April 15, 2017

To Give to Others is to Give Hope................



Pope Francis explained the meaning of Holy Week. He remembered that, paradoxically, Jesus was received with much enthusiasm in Jerusalem.



"Many of the people who came with palms to receive him did so with worldly expectations: they looked for miracles, prodigies, the expulsion of invaders. All of this collapsed before the mystery of the cross. We,…

The verdict of Pilate was that their demand should be granted. So he released the man who had been imprisoned for rebellion and murder, for whom they asked, and he handed Jesus over to them to deal with as they wished. (Luke 23:24-25).
