#PopeFrancis : There's only one call in the Gospel --to follow Jesus on the way of love, which unites charity & contemplation. One small act of pure love is better than all other works combined. What is born of prayer, purified by humility, is the greatest miracle we can perform.
ICYMI: 1,260 Christian leaders have written a letter to the PM on vaccine passports 'For the Church of Jesus Christ to shut out those deemed by the state to be social undesirables would be anathema to us and a denial of the truth of the Gospel.'
Like the disciples, who experienced Jesus’ divine mercy after the resurrection, all Christians are called to become missionaries, sharing the Gospel of God’s love and mercy with others, Pope Francis said. via @Cindy_Wooden @Catholic_NY #DivineMercy

#PopeFrancis : "We are not scandalized" when living & preaching the Gospel encounters resistance "because Jesus was not scandalized by seeing that his joyful preaching of salvation to the poor was not received wholeheartedly."
#PopeFrancis , in his homily at the chrism Mass, is focusing on "the extent to which persecution and the cross are linked to the proclamation of the Gospel," seen throughout Jesus' life and culminating in the Cross.
We will be judged on our relationship with the poor. When Jesus says, "The poor you will always have with you", he is saying, "I will always be with you in the poor; I will be present there". This is at the center of the Gospel, so much so that we will be judged on it.
The Gospel calls us to live outside our comfort zone, because anyone who follows Jesus, loves the poor and the lowly.
