Pope Francis on Mercy

But we know one thing: nothing is impossible for God’s mercy! Even the most tangled knots are loosened by his grace. And Mary, whose “yes” opened the door for God to undo the knot of the ancient disobedience, is the Mother who patiently and lovingly brings us to God, so that he can untangle the knots of our soul by his fatherly mercy. We all have some of these knots, and we can ask in our heart of hearts: what are the knots in my life? “Father, my knots cannot be undone!” It is a mistake to say anything of the sort! All the knots of our heart, every knot of our conscience, can be undone. Do I ask Mary to help me trust in God’s mercy, to undo those knots, to change? She, as a woman of faith, will surely tell you, “Get up, go to the Lord: he understands you.” And she leads us by the hand as a mother, our Mother, to the embrace of our Father, the Father of mercies.

Thank you for an insight of our Pope Francis. Even those who cannot get their hands on any of this books get a small peek into what he writes by going through this article. Please continue to add to the retreats with writings such as these.
Today's readings fit beautifully with the homily from yesterday in our parish. Take it into your heart the great love that God has for me and all of us. That is our foundation and our source.
Very beautiful passage on Pope Francis - Has this been taken from his book "The Church of Mercy"?... If so then this book makes compulsive reading. Simple and directly written. Thank you and please keep including passages such as these.
