Here is an unofficial translation of Pope Francis’ remarks last Sunday afternoon — very much worth a read. It begins:
Jesus is all mercy, Jesus is all love: he is God made man. Each of us, each of us, is that lost sheep, that lost money; each of us is that son who wasted his own freedom following false idols, illusions of happiness, and lost everything. But God doesn’t forget us, the Father never abandons us. He’s a patient father who always awaits us! He respects our freedom, but remains ever faithful.
