Our Every Word And Gesture

Before his General Audience, today Pope Francis received in audience His Grace Baba Edmond Brahimaj, world leader of the Bektashi community, Albania.

Today at St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis held a General Audience and spoke on the mercy and fraternity of God the Father in relation to the parable of the prodical son (full text, full video, summary video). Also, he greeted various pilgrim groups in attendance, especially Polish pilgrims, and asked for “prayer and dialogue” in Brazil amid political imbroglios happening there. Also here is a good video of some newlyweds who attended the audience.

As well today, Pope Francis met with a group of high school students who’ve been using 3D printers to create prosthetic limbs for child amputees in Africa, and he received a special white Table Tennis table from the President of the Italian Table Tennis Federation and managing director of the Table Tennis manufacturer Killerspin.

Additionally, today Pope Francis made one appointment, sent a tweet:

What we say and how we say it, our every word and gesture, ought to express God’s compassion, tenderness and forgiveness for all. (link)
