Pope Francis meeting with Captains Regent of the Most Serene Republic of San Marino, March 16, 2015.

This morning Pope Francis gave a homily at Mass at Casa Santa Marta on the topic of making room for God’s love, and for His dreams for us (more details, summary video).

Also today, Pope Francis received in audience a bunch of different people, including:

• Pope Francis met with the Captains Regent of the Most Serene Republic of San Marino, Excellencies Giancarlo Terenzi and Guerrino Zanotti (press release).
• Pope Francis received Brother Alois, Prior of the Taize Community.
• Also, he met with bishops from Bosnia-Herzegovina on their ad Limina visit and gave a written message as well (full text, summary video). In the written address, he encouraged them to be “fathers of all”:

To you is given the task of being fathers of all, even in the material restrictions and in the crisis in which you find yourselves acting. May your heart be ever wider to receive each one, as the heart of Christ is able to receive in itself, with divine love, every human being.

Pope Francis also spoke of super good things to do with the consecrated life:

In this year, dedicated to Consecrated Life, we must show how all charisms and ministries are destined to the glory of God and the salvation of all men, taking care that they are effectively oriented to the building of the Kingdom of God and not iniquitously to partial ends; that they are exercised in a regime of human and fraternal communion....

So good! God is with Pope Francis and Pope Francis is with God. Pope Francis understands what God’s plan is for the people of Earth and he is a primary leader to bring it to fruition. I love Pope Francis!

And that’s the Pope Francis news for the day!
