CWN Editor's Note: On November 28, Pope Francis received members of the Pontifical Latin American College in Rome.
“Let us not forget that ‘being’ with Jesus and ‘going out’ to proclaim Him also means accompanying the poor, migrants, the sick, prisoners, the least and most forgotten in society, to share life with them and to announce God’s unconditional love,” the Pope told the young priests. “Because Jesus is present in our most vulnerable brothers and sisters, and there He waits for us in a special way.”
The Pope also encouraged the priest to “be addicted to the encounter with Jesus” rather than to their cell phones.
