Many people in the world are suffering, and not just due to the pandemic we've been experiencing. As Pope Francis said last month, people are also affected by other pandemics, such as "the pandemic of wars, hunger, and many others" (5/14/2020).
What can we do? How can we avoid falling into indifference? The Pope shows us the way: compassion. It is the best help we can offer them, through our prayers and lives, bringing them to the Heart of Jesus so He can transform their lives.
"Many people suffer due to the great difficulties they endure. We can help them by accompanying them along an itinerary full of compassion which transforms people's lives. It brings them closer to the Heart of Christ, which welcomes all of us into the revolution of tenderness. We pray that all those who suffer may find their way in life, allowing themselves to be touched by the Heart of Jesus."
