A quote from Pope Francis:
"God's love is boundless. We can discover ever new signs that show His attention towards us and, above all, His wish to reach us and to await us. All our life, although marked by the fragility of sin, is placed under the gaze of God Who loves us. How many pages of the Sacred Scripture speak to us of God's presence, closeness and tenderness for every man, especially for the smallest, the poor and the troubled! The greater our need, the more His gaze upon us is filled with mercy. He feels compassion and pity towards us because He knows our weaknesses."
