Go Out To Encounter

This morning at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis celebrated Mass and gave a homily on serving others as a Christian (more details, summary video).

Also today, he sent message to the participants of the European Meeting of Prison Chaplains (full text).

Today was released Pope Francis’ prayer intentions for June 2016.

As well, he made a bunch of appointments, posted to Twitter:

I join spiritually all those taking part in special devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary on this last day of the month of May. (link)

and to Instagram:

Openness to encounter is another Christian sign. A person who claims to be Christian but is not able to reach out to others, to encounter others...is not fully Christian. Both service and encounter call on us to go out of ourselves; that we go out to serve and go out to encounter, to embrace another person. #christian, #Loveyourneighbor (link, video link)

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