Fragile and Beautiful

2016-02-24 09:59

"You are going to experience much fragility. For this reason I wanted to use this image of something very fragile. Crystal is very fragile; it breaks easily. And Christ on the Cross is the most fragile of humanity; and yet with this fragility he saves us, helps us, makes us go forward, opens the doors of hope to us.

 

I hope that each one of you might know how to sow the seeds of hope and resurrection, through the blessing of Our Lady, and by contemplating the weakness in Christ who made himself sin for us, and who allowed himself to be put to death in order to save us."

 

Pope Francis, Ciudad Juárez prison, Mexico
