Happy 50th Anniversary, Pope Francis!
December 13th, 2019 marks 50 years of Ordination to the Priesthood for His Holiness, Pope Francis. Wishing a very blessed anniversary to our most wonderful and compassionate leader. May God continue to bless his service!
“In the image of the Good Shepherd, the priest is a man of mercy and compassion, close to his people and a servant to all… Whoever is wounded in life, in whatever way, can find in him attention and a sympathetic ear....Wounds need to be treated… We priests must be there, close to these people. Mercy first means treating the wounds”. - Pope Francis, March 2014
