Pope Francis: With his suffering, John Paul II left behind a 'living Magisterium'

2014-03-24

Pope Francis met with the members of the Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers gathered in Rome for their Plenary Assembly.

John Paul II established the Council in 1985, and its president, Msgr. Zygmunt Zimowski, brought him up during his remarks.

"This assembly is gathered to mark the 30th anniversary of the Apostolic Letter from John Paul II 'Salvifici Doloris.'”

Pope Francis also brought up John Paul II in his speech. He said that the Polish Pope knew how to bring out the good from his suffering, and how to help those who suffer.

POPE FRANCIS
"His Magisterium was a living Magisterium, to which the People of God responded with so much affection and veneration, recognizing that God was at his side.”

Pope Francis added that through the protection and promotion of life, the "dignity and value of each human being, from conception to death” are recognized.

POPE FRANCIS
"It's true that even in suffering no one is ever alone, because God, in his merciful love for humans and for the world, embraces even the most inhuman situations.”

The Pope asked the Council's members to always be aware that "the body of Christ” can be found among the poor and those who suffer.
