Medical professionals called to have hearts like Christ’s, says Pope

Catholic World News - June 30, 2014

The Holy See Press Office has published the homily that Pope Francis had intended to preach on June 27 at the Gemelli hospital in Rome.

Instead, Cardinal Angelo Scola read the homily during the Mass.

God’s love, wrote Pope Francis, is absolute and realized fully in Jesus Christ. He remains faithful to his love even if we are not: “fidelity is a value in crisis.” Jesus did not come conquering “like kings and the powerful of this world,” but instead with meekness and humility.

“The fidelity of God teaches us to accept life as an event of his love,” he continued, as he called upon the medical professionals to witness to Christ’s love with meekness and humility. “Lord Jesus, make my heart more and more like yours, full of love and fidelity,” he concluded.
