CWN Editor's Note: Continuing his series of reflections on the Beatitudes, at his regular general audience on February 12, Pope Francis said that genuine sorrow can mean grief at the loss of a loved one or “tears for one’s own sins.” In either case, he said, this sorrow shows both concern for others and, above all, love of God.
