#Drought is a serious problem. It should make us reflect on the care of #creation, which is not a fad, it is everyone's responsibility. The future of the earth is in our hands.

Every day I carry in my heart the dear and tormented #Ukraine, which continues to be scourged by barbaric attacks. Let us #PrayTogether that the Lord open those paths of dialogue that men are unwilling or unable to find!

Let us listen together to what the Spirit is saying to the Church. Let us safeguard our communion. The Paschal Mystery has been given to us. Let us allow ourselves to be embraced by the desire that the Lord continues to have to eat His Passover with us.

#SaintsPeterandPaul, intercede for us, for the city of Rome, for the Church and the entire world!

The journey of faith is never a walk in the park, but is a commitment that is sometimes arduous. Even #SaintsPeterandPaul had to learn how to gradually trod it all the way to the end, especially during moments of trial.

The Christian #faith is fundamentally an encounter with Jesus Christ. If we truly believe in Jesus, we must try to act like Jesus did: encounter others, encounter our neighbours, so as to share the saving truth of the Gospel with them.

I sorrowfully heard the news of the tragedy of the #migrants in Texas and #Melilla. Let us #PrayTogether for these brothers and sisters who died following their hope of a better life; and for ourselves, may the Lord might open our hearts so these misfortunes never happen again.

To serve the Gospel and our brothers and sisters, to offer our own lives without expecting anything in return, without seeking any worldly glory: this is what we are called to.

Dear families, be signs of the living Christ, do not be afraid of what the Lord asks of you, nor of being generous with Him. Be the seed of a more fraternal world! Be the welcoming face of the Church! And please pray, always pray! #WMOF22

In #Ukraine, bombardments continue which are causing death, destruction and suffering for the population. Please, let us not forget these people afflicted by the war. Let us not forget this in our heart and with our prayers.

I entrust to God the soul of Sister Luisa Dell’Orto, a Little Sister of the Gospel of Saint Charles de Foucauld, who made a gift of her life to others even to martyrdom. #LetsPrayTogether for the #Haitian people, so they might have a more serene future.

Let us ask Jesus for the strength to be like him, to follow him resolutely, not to be vindictive and intolerant when difficulties present themselves, when we spend ourselves in doing good and others do not understand this. #GospelOfTheDay (Lk 9:51-62)

The #family is the place of encounter, of sharing, of going forth from ourselves in order to welcome others and stand beside them. The family is the first place where we learn to love. #WMOF22 vatican.va/content/francesco…

Let us place in the #ImmaculateHeart of Mary, where God is mirrored, the inestimable goods of fraternity and peace, all that we have and are, so that she, the Mother whom the Lord has given to us, may protect us and watch over us.

Dear priests, be patient with the faithful, always ready to encourage them. Be untiring ministers of God’s forgiveness and mercy. Never be harsh judges, but loving fathers.

What is needed is an infinite mercy, like that of the #SacredHeart, to remedy so much of the evil and suffering we see in the lives of human beings…. Let us entrust ourselves and the world to Him!

As food diminishes, the thunder of weapons grows. So, let us not stop praying, fasting, helping, working so that paths of #peace might be given more space in the jungle of conflict.

We need to live with our eyes raised to heaven: as Blessed Maria and Luigi Beltrame Quattrocchi used to say to their children, confronting the efforts and joys of life, “always looking from the roof upwards”. #WMOF22

Families are places of welcome, and woe if they were to disappear! Society would become cold and unbearable without welcoming families. #WMOF22
