Pope Francis Celebrates Mass for Brothers and Co-Workers from Vatican Pharmacy

  On Friday, April 5, Pope Francis celebrated Mass in the Chapel of the Domus Sanctae Marthae, attended by the Brothers of the Community and a group of Co-workers from the Vatican Pharmacy.

Commenting on the readings for Friday in the Octave of Easter, the Holy Father emphasised the fact that the faithful ?cannot confess Jesus, we cannot speak about Jesus, and we cannot say anything about Jesus without the Holy Spirit.? For, ?It is precisely the Holy Spirit who drives us on to confess Jesus or to talk about Jesus or to place our trust in Jesus, who is and will always be our path through life.?

He then noted the way in which people sometimes do not place their trust in Jesus but elsewhere when there are problems in our society, resorting perhaps to clairvoyants or tarot card readers; but salvation is to be found in ?in the name of Jesus? alone, for He is our only saviour.

After Mass, Pope Francis spoke to some of the Brothers of St John of God. The Director and the Prior of the Community, Brother Rafael Cenizo, introduced them one at a time to the Holy Father who offered them words of encouragement.
