Pope Francis' Tweets

Pope Francis last Sunday after beatifying Pope Paul VI
Here are some of Pope Francis' recent tweets:
To change the world we must be good to those who cannot repay us.
A Christian is merciful by nature; this is heart of the Gospel.

O Lord, comfort all those who suffer, especially the sick, the poor and the unemployed.
The spiritual power of the Sacraments is boundless. With grace, we can overcome every obstacle.

Dear young people, Christ is counting on you to be his friends and witnesses to his infinite love.
Let us ask the Lord for the grace not to speak badly of others, not to criticize, not to gossip, but rather to love everyone.

Happy families are essential for the Church and for society.
Pope Francis at the end of the Synod
Division within a Christian community is a very grave sin; it is the work of the devil.
There is the tendency to place ourselves and our ambitions at the center of our lives. This is very human, but it is not Christian.
Jesus understands our weaknesses and sins; and he forgives us if we allow ourselves to be forgiven.
When a society lacks God, even prosperity is joined by a terrible spiritual poverty.

Despite our sins, we can say with Peter: Lord, you know everything, you know that I love you.
God’s faithfulness is stronger than our unfaithfulness and our infidelities.
