Pope to the faithful: God does not keep us at a distance

– Let us look to God's heart so that the Church and society do not exclude, they did not exclude anyone, they did not treat anyone as unclean; so that everyone with their own story is welcomed and loved without labels, without prejudices, loved without adjectives – appealed the Pope.

The Pope emphasized that people must understand that “in the face of suffering of body and spirit, wounds of the soul, situations that oppress us, and also in the face of sin, God does not keep us at a distance, he is not ashamed of us, he does not judge us“.

Francis stated that currently “we live in times of martyrdom and even greater than in the first centuries.”
