Pope Francis to priests: We are anointed in order to anoint

By Christopher Wells/ vaticannews.va
: On the morning of Holy Thursday, April 18, during the Chrism Mass in St Peter’s Basilica, Pope Francis reflected on “three graces that characterize the relationship between Jesus and the people”. In his homily during the Chrism Mass, Pope Francis noted that the Gospels often show Jesus in the midst of a crowd, beginning with the shepherds, kings, “and elderly dreamers” at the Nativity, to the “Veronicas” of this world, the “Cyreneans, thieves, and centurions” that surrounded Him on the Cross. The Lord, he continued, “never lost that direct contact with the people”. Although some might hear the word “crowd” and think of a “faceless, nameless throng”, in the Gospel, “we see that when the crowd interacts with Jesus” it is transformed, it is personalized. Three graces Pope Francis reflected...

What is the situation in the city two years after Aleppo was recaptured by government forces? In terms of safety, the situation has improved, even though bombs continue to fall. Several have been dropped on the fringes of Aleppo over the past few weeks. Therefore, the conflict has not actually ended yet. However, what is raging now is more a war of economics. At the end of 2016, we thought that everyone would find work again and would be able to participate in rebuilding the city. We were surprised by the impact of...
