VATICAN CITY — It was to have hands and be able to touch and heal people that Christ became human, Pope Francis has said.
“God meddles in our miseries, he approaches our wounds and heals them with his hands; it was to have hands he became man.”
“God does not save us only by decree, with a law, he saves us with tenderness, he saves us with caresses, he saves us with his life given for us.”
– Pope Francis Oct. 22 homily
