Entrust Ourselves Always To Divine Mercy

This morning at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis had Mass and gave a homily on being a witness of Christ (more details, summary video).

Also today, he received in audience an array of people, including:

• members of the Presidency of the Council of European Episcopal Conferences or CCEE (summary video)
• Prof. Victor García de la Concha, Director of the Instituto Cervantes (summary video)
participants in the General Chapter of the Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mercy (Mercedarians) (full text, summary video). In his address to them, he spoke much of what it means to be a prophet and how the work of the Mercedarians relates to it.

And sent a tweet:

There is the grave problem of labour, because of the high rate of young adults unemployed, but also for the issue of the dignity of work. (link)
