"He focuses on the danger of indifference, apathy and irresponsibility. It's important to delve into this, because it's a phenomenon that's happening in the world right now.” 

The message was presented by Msgr. Giampietro Dal Toso, who serves as the Secretary of the Vatican's Cor Unum Council, which deals with providing humanitarian aid worldwide. 

The message titled, Strengthen your Hearts, deals with a social problem, mostly the indifference of those who are materially wealthy, but poor in the heart. The Pope says the solution is educating through mercy.

"It's about breaking away from individualism and indifference. Breaking away from being closed in on one's self, which the Pope describes as a deadly lock in.”

The Pope also reminded Christians that Lent is a time for renewal and this year, he says, the focus should be on looking towards the suffering of others and lending a helping hand.
