Pope’s quotes: Be silent

A quote from Pope Francis:

“So many of you have lost everything. I do not know what to tell you. But surely He knows what to tell you! So many of you have lost members of your family. I can only be silent; I accompany you silently, with my heart.”

— Mass at Tacloban, site of the Typhoon Haiyan in 2013, Philippines, Jan. 17, 2015
