Let us pray for the victims of the terrorist attack that took place yesterday in Kabul: an inhuman act that affected many young girls as they left school. Let us pray for every one of them and for their families. And may God grant peace to Afghanistan.
I am following with particular concern the events in Jerusalem. I pray that it may be a place of encounter and not of violent clashes, a place of prayer and peace. Violence begets only violence. Enough of these clashes.
The love Jesus gives us is the same with which the Father loves Him: pure, unconditional, freely given love. By giving it to us, Jesus treats us like friends, making us know the Father, and he involves us in his same mission for the life of the world. #GospelOfTheDay (Jn 15:9-17)
