An excerpt from
POPE FRANCIS: REJOICE AND BE GLAD
CHAPTER THREE: IN THE LIGHT OF THE MASTER
THE GREAT CRITERION
97. Given these uncompromising demands of Jesus, it is my duty to ask Christians to acknowledge and accept them in a spirit of genuine openness,
. In other words, without any “ifs or buts” that could lessen their force. Our Lord made it very clear that holiness cannot be understood or lived apart from these demands, for mercy is “the beating heart of the Gospel”.

This Lent, Offer Penance for the Sake of Love
The Timeless Message of Ashes
Every Christian is challenged, here and now, to be actively engaged in evangelization ; indeed, anyone who has truly experienced God's saving love does not need much time or lengthy training to go out and proclaim that love.
Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium
I need nothing but God, and to lose myself in the heart of Jesus.
St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
