“Indifference and hostility make us blind and deaf to our brothers and sisters”

Indifference and hostility make us blind and deaf, prevent us from seeing our brothers and sisters and do not allow us to recognise the Lord within them.” So said Pope Francis, during the General Audience on 15 June 2016, when addressing the faithful and pilgrims from all over Italy.

“Jesus pours out His mercy on all those whom He meets: He calls them, brings them back to themselves, gathers them, heals them and enlightens them, creating a new people who celebrate the wonders of His merciful love. Let us also allow Jesus to call on us, and let us allow ourselves to be healed by Jesus, forgiven by Jesus, and walk behind Jesus praising God,” concluded the Holy Father.

You have given your blessing to the earth, God, sending your blessing on its growth
