Pope Francis at Roman parish: I am “a little old, a little sick, but not too much”


Pope Francis celebrated Mass and met with parishioners at the Roman parish Santa Maria Regina Pacis. The Church is on the outskirts of Rome, and its name translates to "Queen of Peace.”

As Pope Francis entered the church, beautiful music filled the hall while parishioners took photos and reached out to touch him.

During his homily, the Pope discussed the Last Supper. He recalled how Jesus told the disciples, "Abide in me.”

"To remain in Jesus means to be united to Him, to receive life from Him, to receive love from Him, to receive the Holy Spirit from Him.”

He said that Christians must reflect on whether they remain in Jesus or if they have separated from him.

"A good question for us Christians is this: Do I remain in Jesus or am I away from Jesus? Are you united to the vine that gives life or are you united with a dead branch, which is unable to bear fruit, to give testimony?”

The parish is located about 20 miles from the Vatican City in the suburb Ostia. The seaside neighborhood has about 85,000 inhabitants.
