OUR WORLD TODAY
Pope Francis on Twitter @ Pontifex, August 7 — Ukraine — “The departure of the first ships loaded with grain from the ports of Ukraine is a sign of hope. I sincerely hope that, following in this direction, there might be an end to combat and that a just and lasting peace might be reached.”
Pope Francis on Twitter @ Pontifex, August 5 — “To give hope to others, sometimes it is simply enough to be kind, to put aside your own worries and priorities in order to show interest, give the gift of a smile, speak an encouraging word, create a space for listening amid so much indifference.”
