Today at Mass in St. Martha’s Guesthouse: Pope Francis recalled the parable recounted in the Gospel in which there is a half-dead man lying in the road. A priest walks by – a zealous priest wearing a cassock and on his way to say Mass. The priest looks at the man and says to himself “I will be late for Mass” and goes on his way. Pope Francis said, the priest was on time for Mass and the faithful were happy.
Pope Francis pointed out that it can happen that Christians, Catholics, priests, Bishops and even the Pope sometimes turn away from God!
