Reflections

"How much damage does the comfortable life, well-being, do? … The gentrification of the heart paralyzes us," said Pope Francis in his homily May 12, calling on the faithful to "touch the flesh of Christ" by caring for the needy. "How am I faithful to Christ? Am I able to show my faith with respect, but also with courage? Am I attentive to others? Do I recognize when someone is in need? Do I see in everyone brothers and sisters to love?"

Pope Francis waves at the end of a Mass where he canonized the first Colombian saint, as well as a Mexican nun and some 800 Italians martyred by Ottoman Turks in the 15th century.
