2015-04-27

While leading the Regina Coeli prayer, Pope Francis prayed for the thousands of victims who died in Nepal, after a 7.8 earthquake struck the country. An estimated  3,600 people lost their lives. More than 6,000 were injured. 

POPE FRANCIS
"I want to express my spiritual closeness to the people of Nepal and its neighboring countries. I pray for the victims, the wounded and all those who suffer became of this catastrophe. May they find the comfort of fraternal solidarity.” 

April 27th marks one year since the canonization of John Paul II. The Pope highlighted the need to remember his teachings. 

POPE FRANCIS
"May his call always ring in your hearts: Open wide the doors to Christ! He would say this with his strong and holy voice.” 

Reflecting on Sunday's reading, the Pope also explained why Jesus is a Good Shepherd who is willing to give his life for his sheep, without expecting anything in return. 

POPE FRANCIS
"It's the highest and purest love. It's not motivated out of necessity, nor is it conditioned by a calculation. It's not based out of interest for something in return.” 

The Pope then called on Christians, especially those who lead the Church, to imitate Jesus in being a Good Shepherd.
