CWN Editor's Note: “Jesus, the Good Shepherd, cares for us because he truly loves us,” Pope Francis tweeted on August 4, the memorial of St. John Vianney. “We, the Church’s pastors, are asked to show that same generosity in tending the flock, so as to manifest Jesus’ concern for everyone and his compassion for each person’s wounds. #CureOfArs”
