“be merciful, the souls of the faithful need your mercy.”
The words from Pope Francis to the confessors at the Basilica of Saint Mary Major in central Rome.
As I read THIS article, yes I was moved and smiled that Pope Francis really IS “Doing it his way.”
But it was the paragraph that I quoted above that brought tears to my eyes.
I am one of those souls that needs mercy as I am one of the worst. I know others that require this mercy to feel accepted and loved, but above all forgiven, both by others and themselves.
May Our Blessed Mother guide his Papacy.
And do take the time to read John Thavis’ blog, “Pope Francis’ first 24 hours: Doing it his way”
