Thought for the Day

“The joy of God is not the death of the sinner, but the life of the sinner. And how far from this were those who murmured against Jesus, how far from the heart of God! They didn’t know Him. They thought that being religious, being good people meant always being well-mannered and polite, and often pretending to be polite, right? This is the hypocrisy of the murmuring. But the joy of God the Father, in fact, is love. He loves us. 'But I’m a sinner, I’ve done this and that and the other!' 'But I love you anyway, and I go out searching for you, and I bring you home.' This is our Father. Let’s reflect on this.”

--Pope Francis
