Words of The Holy Father

Today the Lord says to each of us: 'Get up, take your life as it is, beautiful, ugly as it is, take it and go on. Don't be afraid, go on with your stretcher' - 'But Lord, this is not the last model...'. But go on! With that ugly stretcher, maybe, but go on! It's your life, it's your joy. "Do you want to get well?", the first question the Lord asks us today? "Yes, Lord" - "Get up". And if we tell the Lord 'Yes, I want to get well. Yes, Lord, help me that I want to get up', we will know what the joy of salvation is like. (Santa Marta, 28 March 2017)
