2013-05-14

Since the Holy Spirit teaches us to love, said the Pope, one must pray and ask for a bigger heart. 

POPE FRANCIS 
"These days, as we prepare to celebrate the feast day of the Holy Spirit, let us pray: Come Holy Spirit! Come and make my heart bigger. A heart that can love with humility and meekness. Give me a big heart so that I may love. We ask this grace of the Holy Spirit. May the Spirit lead us, so we don't stray on the wrong track of selfishness, which always ends badly. Let's pray for this grace.”

Usually Vatican employees are allowed to attend the Pope's daily Mass. On Tuesday the group included employees of the Vatican Museums. Also there was the Archbishop of Medellin Colombia, Ricardo Antonio Tobón Restrepo.
