I know now that true charity consists in bearing all our neighbours' defects -- not being surprised at their weakness, but edified at their smallest virtues.
-St. Thérèse de Lisieux

********************** May the words of the holy Gospel wash away our sins and bring us to everlasting life.
********************** "The Gospel is capable of changing people! It transforms evil inclinations into good proposals. It frees those who are enslaved by sin, the spirit of vanity, of attachment to money, of pride, of sensuality… Read the Word of God daily and meditate upon its teachings and allow yourselves to be nurtured every day by this infinite source of salvation."(Pope Francis)
The Holy Father's message focuses on overcoming indifference in all its forms in the Church and in ourselves. Pope Francis has emphasized the need for all Catholics to reach out to the marginalized and not to become self-centered. We can become more like Christ, he said, by hearing the Word of God, receiving the sacraments and by uniting with others in prayer. We can use Lent as an opportunity for a conversion of heart.
