October 06, 2016
Following his October 5 general audience, Pope Francis greeted Auschwitz survivors who had gathered in St. Peter’s Square.
“I cordially greet all the Polish people present here and in particular the ex-prisoners of the Auschwitz concentration camp,” he said. “Today we commemorate St. Faustina Kowalska, who reminded the world that God is rich in mercy, and that His love is stronger than death, sin and all evil.”
“May this message of Merciful Jesus, entrusted to her, bear fruit in our life with a deeper union with God and with the works of mercy,” the Pope continued. “Entrusting ourselves and the difficult problems of the world to the Lord, let us repeat frequently: ‘Jesus, I trust in you!’ Praise be to Jesus Christ.”
