Anne Lastman A Reflection “Peter,” The Holy Father, Pope Francis, without breaking the line of…
In one of the many news services received today, one of them said that the Holy Father was very emotional during the Via Crucis at this years world youth day and I see this as not surprising but joyful. Imagine his joy at seeing over 1.5 million young who were there to say “Yes Benedetto. We Love you.”
In a world which has lost all knowledge of respect and honour, it must have been comforting for him to see these young faces saying “Yes” to Jesus and His (Jesus) own chosen Vicar.
And how interesting! over 1.5 million youth and no riots, but song, dance, and love. Where love is found there is no need for rioting.
And as I followed the proceedings of WYD, I loved seeing the torrent of rain which came down on the Holy Father and the pilgrims. Imagine in the middle of such heat over 40deg Celsius The Lord sent a little cooling for them. How beautifully thoughtful of our God.
And imagine this, the torrent of graces poured down in the image of rain. Perfect.
