Pope speaks of God's mercy & blesses the work of ACN

In his address Pope Francis, in summary, asked this morning "How can we say that the Church is holy, when it is made up of sinners...myself included?" He then spoke of God's overwhelming love and mercy - "We are all welcome - even the greatest sinner - as God's mercy is so great."    

The Holy Father then welcomed the international pilgrims of Aid to the Church  in Need. Pope Francis spoke of the work of ACN where the Church suffers oppression, discrimination and persecution. He invoked his blessing on the work and benefactors of Aid to the Church in Need and encouraged us to continue this work. 

In thanks & prayer
