POPE FRANCIS: THANK JESUS FOR HIS LOVE AND ASK FOR THE COURAGE TO FOLLOW HIM
In his Oct. 3, 2017 morning homily at Santa Marta, Pope Francis reminded us:
“Let us take some time, the Pope said, to think about Jesus who loved us so much, who walked alone towards the cross: think about Him and thank Him for his obedience and His courage and enter into conversation with Him.”
“Speak to Jesus, acknowledging all the things He has done for us, acknowledging the patience with which he tolerates our sins and our failures.”
“Take some time today – five, ten, fifteen minutes – either before the crucifix or with your imagination, to ‘see’ Jesus walking determinately towards Jerusalem and ask for the grace to have the courage to follow him closely.”
