CWN Editor's Note: “Your consecration in widowhood is a gift that the Lord gives to His Church to remind all the baptized that the power of His merciful love is a path of life and holiness, which allows us to overcome trials and be reborn to hope and to the joy of the Gospel,” Pope Francis said. “I invite you therefore to keep your gaze fixed on Jesus Christ and to cultivate the particular bond that unites you to Him.”
