Pope Francis began 2020 with a bang on Wednesday, issuing a harsh condemnation of violence against women, insisting that how society treats women and their bodies is a measure of its level of humanity.
With Vatican reforms, major trips and key personnel moves all looming, 2019 looks like a big year for Pope Francis.
Pope Francis on New Year’s Day extolled Mary as the prototypical mother, saying “the human family is built upon mothers.”
Pope Francis prayerfully entrusted troubled families to the protection of the Holy Family of Nazareth Sunday and offered his advice for healing family wounds.
The Christian message is one that honors the present moment. It frees us from the guilt of the past or the anxiety of the future, so that we can accept the grace offered each day.
Francis appeared to suggest Monday it’s not a coincidence that the World Day of Peace and the feast of Mary the Mother of God coincide. In fact, he seemed to say, the spiritual basis of real peace is to be found in Mary herself.
