The Lord indicates to us the journey of hope to follow.
Pope Francis encouraged Arabic-speaking Christians, especially those from the Middle East present in St. Peter’s Square, to do so during today’s General Audience of Wednesday, March  14, 2018.
After his catechesis on Communion Rites, the Pope stressed, that in this penitential time, “The Lord indicates to us the path of hope to follow.”
“Let yourselves be guided by the Holy Spirit, in order to make a real conversion, to be purified of sin and to serve Christ present in our brothers and sisters, according to each’s own capacities and roles.”
Pope Francis concluded, saying: “May the Lord bless you all! “
