Pope's quotes: A true gift

A quote from Pope Francis:

“In this time of ours, characterized by individualism, many wounds and the temptation to close oneself away, it is a true gift to be able to see and accompany people who seek mercy. This also demands greater evangelical coherence and paternal goodness of us; we are the custodians, never the masters, of both the flock and of grace."

-- Audience with participants of Apostolic Penitentiary, March 4, 2016
