Pope Francis ended his trip to the United States with a call for Catholics to keep the enthusiasm of the visit, while continuing to welcome newcomers and care for creation.
Pope Francis urged the hundreds of thousands of people gathered for the closing Mass of the World Meeting of Families to serve and care for each other as freely as God loves the human family.
At home and abroad, Pope Francis scrutinizes people and identifies something good and beautiful in them.
El papa también dijo a los internos que los estaba visitando como un pastor, "pero sobre todo como un hermano".
"Los inmigrantes, sí, quieren documentos, pero más que nada quieren saber que ellos le importan a alguien", dijo el arzobispo de San Antonio
The pope also told the inmates he was visiting as a pastor, "but mostly as a brother."
"I am deeply sorry. God cries," Pope Francis said.
People throughout the audience expressed hope that the pope will inspire more people, especially policymakers, to react with compassion to the needs of immigrants.
Many times you don’t need a miracle, you just need each other.
Come away with Jesus and be renewed for the battle!
