Today at St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis celebrated the Holy Mass of Divine Mercy and gave a homily on what it means to walk the path of mercy (full text, full video, summary video). Following the Mass, he gave a Regina Coeli address during which he spoke of the situation in Ukraine and initiated a special collection from churches throughout Europe to help war victims there (full text, summary video).
Also today, Pope Francis sent a tweet:
Mercy: the bridge that connects God and man, opening our hearts to the hope of being loved forever despite our sinfulness. (link)
and posted to Instagram:
I want to be among you as a missionary of mercy, of the tenderness of God. But let me encourage you also to be self-witnesses of this infinite love of God – that no one lacks the witness of our faith, our love. Let everyone know that God always forgives, that God is always by our side, that God loves us! #Tenderness, #Mercy, #catholic (link, video link)
And that’s the Pope Francis news for the day!
