Read the Words of Pope Francis to the World on Palm Sunday :
“The tragedy we are experiencing at this time summons us to take seriously the things that are serious,
and not to be caught up in those that matter less.
To rediscover that life is of no use if not used to serve others.
For life is measured by love.
So, in these holy days, in our homes, let us stand before the Crucified one
-look upon the Crucified One!-
the fullest measure of God’s love for us, and before the God who serves us,
to the point of giving His life, and,-fixing our gaze
on the Crucified One- let us ask for the grace to live in order to serve.
May we reach out to those who are suffering and those most in need.
May we be concerned about what good we can do for others.”
Pope Francis celebrates the Mass “In Coena Domini” on Holy Thursday evening, giving thanks for the priestly ministry and recalling the many priests who have died while serving the sick. Watch a 1 minute summary here.
Gaze upon the outstretched arms of Christ crucified, let yourself be saved over and over again.
