During his Monday morning Mass, Pope Francis explained that Our Lady walked with God at her side. Then he asked a very direct question to all Christians.
"Do I let God walk by my side? Do I let Him walk with me, or do I walk alone? Do I let God caress me, help me, forgive me and lead me to an encounter with Jesus?
The Pope went on to explain that God walks both with sinners and with saints. He then added that unlike objects, people are free to make their own decisions. But God, he said, has the patience to wait for those who reject Him, until they turn back.
