Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

Blessed are those who mourn

“‘Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.’ How can those who weep be happy? Yet, those who in life have never felt sadness, angst, sorrow, will never know the power of comfort. Instead, happy are those with the capacity to be moved, the capacity to feel in their hearts the sorrow that exists in their lives and in the lives of others. They will be happy! Because the tender hand of God the Father will comfort them and will caress them.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: How do you deal with sadness or anxiety in your own life and in the lives of others? Have you ever felt the tender hand of the Father comfort you in a time of sorrow?
