Pope Francis on Twitter

I express my closeness to the thousands of migrants, refugees in Libya: I never forget you; I hear your cries and pray for you. We are all responsibile for these our brothers and sisters, who have been victims of this serious situation for too many years. Let us #PrayTogether.

"Jesus, have mercy on me!" Let us make this prayer our own today. Let us repeat it. We must ask Jesus, who can do everything, for everything. He cannot wait to pour out his grace and joy into our hearts. #GospelOfTheDay

In the #GospelOfTheDay (Mk 10:46-52), the faith of Bartimaeus, the blind beggar, shines. He asks everything of the One who can do everything: “Have mercy on me". He doesn't ask for a favour,
but presents himself: he asks for mercy on his person, on his life.

To live out a mission means cultivating the sentiments that Jesus has, to believe with Him that those around me are also my brothers and sisters. May His love reawaken our hearts and make us all true missionary disciples. #WorldMissionDay https://www.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/messages/missions/documents/papa-francesco_20210106_giornata-missionaria2021.html

The preaching of the #Gospel reinvigorates hope because it reminds us that God is present in everything. He accompanies us and gives us the courage and creativity we need to start ever anew.
