In the Footsteps of Pope Francis
"The key that opens the door to the faith is prayer. I say to pray, I do not say to say prayers .....
Jesus, instead, says: 'when you pray, go into your room and pray to the Father in secret, heart to heart.'
It is one thing to pray and another thing to say prayers."
Pope Francis, from his October 17th, 2013 homily. Read the entire transcript here, as reported by Vatican Radio.

"I have a dogmatic certainty: God is in every person?s life. God is in everyone?s life. Even if the life of a person has been a disaster, even if it is destroyed by vices, drugs or anything else ? God is in this person?s life. You can, you must try to seek God in every human life. Although the life of a person is a land full of thorns and weeds, there is always a space in which the good seed can grow. You have to trust God."
Pope Francis, from an interview in the publication, America.
