If they want to grow in His friendship, Jesus’ disciples, must not complain and look inward. They must act and commit themselves, certain that the Lord will support and accompany them.

What must one do to be a good Christian? The answer is simple: we have to do, each in our own way, what Jesus says in the Beatitudes. #ApostolicJourney  #Mauritius 

Thank you for your warm welcome. May God bless you all you. May His love and mercy continue to accompany and protect you! #ApostolicJourney 

Christ is the hope of the world: His Gospel is the most powerful leaven of brotherhood, freedom, justice and peace for all peoples. #GeneralAudience 

Today we celebrate the Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary. I invite everyone to turn to Our Lady. Let her inspire you with a Christian outlook, so as to live like and imitate her Son Jesus ever more.

I wish to endorse a global event, to take place on 14 May 2020 on the theme Reinventing the Global Educational Alliance.

God waits for us: He doesn't get tired, He doesn't lose heart. Because it is each one of us who is that child embraced again, that coin found again, that sheep caressed and put back on His shoulders (Luke 15:1-32). #Angelus 


How often in the Bible the Lord asks us to welcome migrants and foreigners, reminding us that we too are foreigners!

A person's dignity does not depend on them being a citizen, a migrant, or a refugee. Saving the life of someone fleeing war and poverty is an act of humanity. #WithRefugees 

Dear young people, never get tired of being instruments of peace and joy among your peers!

The earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth.

Dear young people, I would like to tell each one of you: God loves you; never doubt it, whatever happens to you in life; under any circumstances, you are infinitely loved.

There is no such thing as harmless disinformation; trusting in falsehood can have dire consequences.

Children must be able to play, study and grow in a peaceful environment. Woe to anyone who stifles their joyful impulse to hope!

I invite you not to build walls but bridges, to conquer evil with good, offence with forgiveness, to live in peace with everyone.

Grandparents are a treasure in the family. Please, take care of your grandparents: love them and let them talk to your children!
