I don’t think that I can provide very good reflection and commentary this week. So, whenever I find myself at this place, I go to a source that is wiser than I, and I pass along that wisdom. So, today, I would like to pass along some of my favorite tweets from the man himself, our Holy Father Pope Francis. Even though he only has 150 characters to use, I think that Pope Francis gets it done! These are easy sayings to memorize, that might help you for daily devotional inspiration.
From @Pontifex on Twitter:
The Lord is knocking at the door of our hearts. Have we put a sign on the door saying: “Do not disturb”?
Let us pray for peace, and let us bring it about, starting in our own homes!
Wars shatter so many lives. I think especially of children robbed of their childhood
It is easy to ask God for things; we all do it. When will we also learn to give him thanks and to adore him?
Dear young people, let us not be satisfied with a mediocre life. Be amazed by what is true and beautiful, what is of God!
I cannot imagine a Christian who does not know how to smile. May we joyfully witness to our faith.
It is important to have friends we can trust. But it is essential to trust the Lord, who never lets us down.
Let us pray for seminarians, that they may listen to the voice of the Lord and follow it with courage and joy.
Let us never lose hope! God loves us always, even with our mistakes and sins.
God bless you all. May you find inspiration in the Wisdom of the Holy Spirit! Fr. Bill Barron
