A SNIPPET FROM THIS WEEK'S NEWSLETTER - GREAT THEME OF THE POPE
'Mercy is the Lord's most powerful message,' he told the congregation in the little Church of Saint Anna located within
the Vatican. 'It is not easy to trust oneself to the mercy of God, because [God's mercy] is an unfathomable abyss—but we must do it.' From Jesus, he said, we will 'not hear words of contempt, we do not hear words of condemnation, but
only words of love, of mercy, that invite us to conversation."Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin not more!" … The problem is that we get tired of asking forgiveness. Let us never get tired. He is the loving Father who always forgives, who has that heart of mercy for all of us.' Bergoglio has changed, is the message, but changes will continue for Francis too. The man who is now Pope remains, he is telling us, a work in progress.
Extract from 'Pope Francis—Untying the Knots. What changed Bergoglio?
