In case you missed it, at his general audience yesterday Pope Francis said God is like a good father and a good mother:
In his earthly mission, Jesus walked the streets of the Holy Land; he called twelve simple people to remain with him, to share his journey and continue his mission; he chose them among the people full of faith in the promises of God. He spoke to everyone, without distinction, to the great and the lowly; to the rich young man and the poor widow, the powerful and the weak; he brought the mercy and forgiveness of God to all; he healed, comforted, understood, gave hope, he led all to the presence of God, who is interested in every man and woman, like a good father and a good mother is interested in each child.
Shades of Pope John Paul I, “[God] is our father; even more he is our mother” ?
