+414+ Being a good Catholic means you live like Jesus (Ash Wednesday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ash Wednesday. What do we like about Pope Francis?

  • He lives a simple life.
  • He loves the poor.
  • He loves all people.

To sum it up, we love Pope Francis because he kind of looks like Jesus. He’s showing the Cardinals and the Vatican that they should live like Jesus. Every priest should kind of look like Jesus. And yes, every Christian is called to look like Jesus. This Lent, let’s imitate Pope Francis:

  • Fast from one luxury, so you can live a simpler life.
  • Give alms by finding one way to serve the poor, wherever you find them.
  • Pray a little more, so your life can be more full of God’s love for all people.

This Lent, lets each follow the example of Pope Francis and come to reflect in our own lives the Face of Jesus. (5 Mar 2014)
