Pope Francis asks all Americans to be "neighbors of the defenseless"

2016-08-29

The continent of America is celebrating the Jubilee of Mercy. For this occasion, Pope Francis sent a video message to the 22 countries from Latin America, the Caribbean, Canada and the United States, who have come together for this occasion.

POPE FRANCIS
"Given the many attempts to fragment, divide and set our peoples at odds, such events help us to broaden our horizons and to continue our handshake; a great sign that encourages us in hope."

In his video message, he further explains that mercy is not an ideology, but something concrete. It is an action that allows everyone to feel as though they have another chance.

POPE FRANCIS
"Far from being an idea, a desire, a theory – much less an ideology – mercy is a concrete way of "touching” weakness, of bonding with others, of drawing closer to others."

The pope also says the world needs the mercy of God and that every person can apply it in their dealings with others. He asked all Americans, from the north, center and south to especially be close to the most vulnerable, amid the current "wounded society" in the world. 

POPE FRANCIS
"But it is precisely to this society, to this culture , that the Lord sends us. He sends us and urges us to bring the balm of  "His” presence. He sends us with one program alone: to treat one another with mercy. To become neighbors to those thousands of defenseless people who walk in our beloved American land by proposing a different way of treating them."

Until tomorrow, thousands of laity, religious, priests, bishops and cardinals will continue to celebrate the Jubilee of Mercy, which has united all people in Bogotá, Colombia.
