Don’t you just love it when you turn on the news and see the Pope?
In honor of his visit to the US this week, I thought I’d round up some of my favorite Pope Francis tweets.
On the importance of reading Scripture:
If faith is to be strong and healthy, it must be constantly nourished by the Word of God.
— Pope Francis (@Pontifex) October 21, 2014
On the dignity and vocation of the family:
The Christian family is missionary: it announces the love of God to the world. — Pope Francis (@Pontifex) December 28, 2014
Because this is easy to forget when you’re bogged down in your sin:
The Lord never tires of forgiving us. It is we who get tired of asking for pardon.
— Pope Francis (@Pontifex) April 14, 2015
Papa is always challenging me to get a little more uncomfortable:
Every Christian community must be a welcoming home for those searching for God, for those searching for a brother or sister to listen to them — Pope Francis (@Pontifex) April 28, 2015
Again, a needed reminder:
God is always waiting for us, he always understands us, he always forgives us.
— Pope Francis (@Pontifex) May 19, 2015
On making sense out of suffering:
There are times when God is silent, a silence which cannot be understood unless we gaze upon Christ crucified.
— Pope Francis (@Pontifex) May 21, 2015
Christ is counting on YOU:
Dear young people, Christ is counting on you to be his friends and witnesses to his infinite love. — Pope Francis (@Pontifex) October 10, 2014
