Reflecting on the day's Gospel readings, the Pope highlighted that the Church is universal and so is Her message

POPE FRANCIS
"The Church isn't born isolated, but rather universal. It's one, Catholic. With a specific identity but open to everyone.” 

As part of the Universal nature of the Church, the Pope then added that it's open to everyone, both sinners and saints. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Our Mother Church doesn't slam the door in anyone's face. No one! Not even the worst sinner. Nobody! This is thanks to the strength and grace of the Holy Spirit.” 

The Pope also prayed for the more than 3,600 immigrants from Myanmar who were found ashore in Indonesia, after fleeing their home country. Thousands more are expected to be stranded at sea.
