Here you will find Pope Francis' first Angelus from the window of the Apostolic Palace where he spoke of God's patience with his children.
A little mercy would make the world more just and less cold. St Peter’s Square was festive and colourful, ready to embrace Pope Francis for his first Angelus from the window of the Apostolic Palace. Pope Francis spoke of God’s patience with his children, the example of Jesus, who, in dealing with people with genuinely contrite hearts, never spoke words of contempt or condemnation, but only of love and mercy. If the Lord does not forgive, he said, citing a book by Cardinal Walter Kasper, and recalling a conversation with an 80-year-old widow, the world would not exist. Once again, Pope Francis asked us all to pray for his ministry, urging everyone to always seek God’s forgiveness.
