“God meddles in our miseries, he approaches our wounds and heals them with his hands”

Using that stunning picture from earlier in the week as a starting point, CNS has posted an overview of some memorable photographic moments with Pope Francis. Writer Carol Glatz makes note of something beautiful the pontiff said during a recent homily:

“God meddles in our miseries, he approaches our wounds and heals them with his hands; it was to have hands he became man.

“God does not save us only by decree, with a law, he saves us with tenderness, he saves us with caresses, he saves us with his life given for us.”

Visit the CNS blog to see some wonderful pictures, and as the old hymn says, “ponder anew what the Almighty can do.”
