This version of The Weekly Francis covers material released in the last week from 25 February to 7 March 2018.
The Weekly Francis is a compilation of the Holy Father’s writings, speeches, etc which I also post at Jimmy Akin’s blog.
- “God in His providence offers us the season of Lent each year as a chance to return to Him with all our hearts and in every aspect of our lives.” @Pontifex 1 March 2018
- “Fasting makes us more alert and attentive to God and our neighbour, and reminds us that He alone can satisfy our hunger.” @Pontifex 2 March 2018
- “Almsgiving helps us to recognize our neighbour as our brother or sister, and to acknowledge that what we possess is never our’s alone.” @Pontifex 3 March 2018
- “God, who cannot be outdone in generosity, still uses you and me to help our brothers and sisters.” @Pontifex 5 March 2018
- “Let us learn to recognize that which leaves a good and lasting mark on our hearts, knowing that it comes from God.” @Pontifex 6 March 2018
