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)
