A quote from Pope Francis:
“None of us knows what life will bring us. And you, dear young friends, are asking: ‘What is in store for me?’ We are capable of doing bad things, very bad things, but please, do not despair: the Father is always there waiting for us! Come back! Come back! This is the word: Come back! Come back home because the Father is waiting for me. And if I am a great sinner, he will celebrate the more. And you priests, please, embrace sinners and be merciful.”
