“It is harmful to find Christians with embittered faces, with a face wry with bitterness, not in peace. Never, never was there a saint with a mournful face, never! Saints always have joy in their faces. Or at least, amid suffering, a face of peace. The greatest suffering, the martyrdom of Jesus: He always had peace in his face and was concerned about others: his mother, John, the thief… his concern was for others.

To have this Christian joy, first, is prayer; second, to give thanks… Third, let us think where I can go to bring a little relief, a little peace, to those who suffer…. This is the vocation of Christ and the vocation of Christians as well. To go to others, to those in need, whether their needs be material or spiritual…. Many people who suffer anxiety because of family problems…. To bring peace there, to bring the unction of Jesus, the oil of Jesus which does so much good and consoles souls.

Pray, give thanks, and help others.”

— Pope Francis in a great, mostly extremely ‘plain English’ homily on a visit to a parish in Rome 14th December 2014 (note: unction is defined as ‘something soothing or comforting’ and ‘the shedding of a divine or spiritual influence on a person’)

“Selfishness makes people deaf and dumb; love opens eyes and hearts.”

— Pope John-Paul II, as quoted in “Pope John Paul II: In My Own Words”, 1998, Hodder and Stoughton Ltd, page 23, with the sub-heading “‘Message for World Youth Day, 1996”.

— Pope John-Paul II, as quoted in “Pope John Paul II: In My Own Words”, 1998, Hodder and Stoughton Ltd, page 22, with the sub-heading “‘Homily at Grant Park, Chicago, 1979”.
