Below are just a few of the recent Tweets from the official website of His Holiness Pope Francis:

The first step towards an attitude of worship is to “lift up our eyes”. When we lift up our eyes to God, life’s problems do not go away, but we feel certain that the Lord grants us the strength to deal with them. (Jan 6)
I am praying for the United States of America, shaken by the recent attack on Congress. I pray for those who lost their life. Violence is always self-destructive. I urge everyone to promote a culture of encounter and of care to construct the common good. (Jan 10)
It is striking that the Lord spent most of his time on Earth living an ordinary life, without standing out. It is a beautiful message that reveals the greatness of daily life, the importance in God’s eyes of every gesture and moment of life, even the most simple. (Jan 11)
A society is all the more human to the degree that it cares effectively for its most frail and suffering members, in a spirit of fraternal love. (Jan 12)
