GOOD FRIDAY: CAN WE HELP CHRIST CARRY HIS CROSS?
Today is Good Friday 2021 and also the 16th anniversary of the death of the beloved Pope, Saint John Paul II.
Jesus carried that Cross and died for us. Could we not at least try to help Him carry His Cross?
I love the enormously powerful message of this image.
POPE VISITS HOMELESS, POOR AS THEY RECEIVE VACCINE
This morning, Good Friday, shortly before 10.00, Pope Francis went to the atrium of the Paul VI Hall as the vaccinations of some homeless people or people in difficulty were being carried out. They have been welomed to the Vatican in recent days and accompanied to the vaccination area by some Roman associations. The Holy Father Pope greeted the doctors and nurses, followed the procedure for preparing the vaccine doses and spoke to some of the people awaiting vaccination.
To date, about 800 of the approximately 1,200 people in need who will be given the vaccine this week have been vaccinated with the first dose.
