Pope at the Angelus: God waits for us, embraces us, forgive us. This is God!

2016-09-12

During the Sunday Angelus, the pope recalled three parables of the Gospel. He said the three have one thing in common: there is no sin into which we have fallen, from which, we can not rise again; this being synonymous with the Jubilee.

Pope Francis said that God always waits and gives another opportunity to those who need it.

POPE FRANCIS
"The way back home is the way of hope and new life. God awaits to forgive us out on the road, waiting for us patiently, he sees us when we are still far away, he runs towards us, embraces us, kisses us,  forgives us. So is God! So is our Father! 

He explained that God's forgiveness erases all sins, renews it from love and forgets everything that happened in the past.

Finally, he asked for special prayers for the central African nation of Gabon, a country that is experiencing a serious political crisis. The pope prayed for the victims and families of the people who have been affected by violence.
