Today overlooking St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis gave an Angelus Address on the miracle of the loaves and fishes (full text, full video, summary video). Here’s a really really good quote from the address:

We surely have some time, some kind of talent, some kind of expertise. Who among us does not have their “five loaves and two fishes”? We all have it! If we are willing to place it in the Lord’s hands, it would be enough so that in the world there would be a bit more love, of peace, of justice and above all, of joy.

I love Pope Francis!

During the address, he also officially opened registration for World Youth Day taking place next year in Poland, and in the middle of the address he registered himself for the event using an electronic device (summary video). As well, he prayed for the safe return of Father Paolo Dall’Oglio who was kidnaped in Syria (summary video).

Additionally, in the twenty-four hours following Pope Francis opening registrations for the World Youth Day, over 45,000 people have already signed up!

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