Pastors are called to help them experience the charity of Christ and the maternal closeness of the Church, receiving them with love, exhorting them to trust in God's mercy and suggesting, with prudence and respect, concrete ways of conversion and sharing in the life of the community of the Church."Oh, wait....... what?

Happy Anniversary, Papa! (Hey, did he steal Papa Francesco's schtick?)
