Pope's first Angelus: God never gets tired of forgiving. We get tired of asking for forgiveness

2013-03-17

POPE FRANCIS
"Recently, I read a book authored by Cardinal Kasper, who is a great theologian. It deals with mercy and it has helped me quite a bit. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to publicize the writings of my cardinals. God understands us. He waits for us. He doesn't get tired of forgiving us, if we repent and go to him with a truly open heart.”

This time around the Pope only spoke in Italian. Usually a greeting and summary is given in about eight languages. He gave an improvised farewell at the end, which got much applause.

POPE FRANCIS
"Never forget this: The Lord never gets tired of forgiving us. It is we, who get tired of asking for forgiveness. Have a great Sunday and a great lunch!”

From flags to cheers, St. Peter's Square was quite full. The Vatican says at least 150,000 people gathered in the Square and along surrounding streets to hear the Angelus of the first Latin American Pope.
