‘Diverse and United’: Vatican publishes new book by Pope Francis
May 26, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: The book (Diverse and United: I Communicate, Therefore I Am) includes a preface by Anglican Archbishop Justin Welby of Canterbury. In the book, the Pope reflects on Jesus’ gaze of love upon the rich young man: the “gaze of Jesus, who looks upon us with eyes of gratuitous and generous love to the point of total self-giving.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).

Thank you wenner1687 for posting this comment. I am sure that many in this readership experience this sense of malaise regarding the current state of affairs in our Church. Our redeeming hope is to keep our gaze fixed on He who really counts, the governing, the sanctifying, the teaching high priest of our faith--Jesus Christ. If we stay fixated on Him rather than allowing ourselves to be overwhelmed by the cares of the world, we are doing our duty as He taught us by word, example, and miracle.

I regret that I am so weary of the current incumbent of the Chair of St Peter that I do not care to read anything he writes, even if this particular book is has nothing in it requiring intellectual contortions to conform it to the Magisterium. Proverbs 15:2.
