Compassion Mercy Sin

Their fall could have been mine

By on October 22, 2020

Prisoners of Bolivia, even Saint Peter and Saint Paul had been prisoners. I have a special relationship with people in prisons, deprived of their freedom. I have always been very attached to them, precisely because of my awareness of being a sinner. I always think: Why them and not me? Their fall could have been mine. I do not feel superior to the people who stand before me.
– Pope Francis, The Name of God Is Mercy

I unite myself to the pain of the families of the students barbarically killed in #Kumba, #Cameroon. May God enlighten hearts, so that similar acts may never be repeated! I send my affection to the families and all Cameroon, and I invoke the comfort that only God can give.
