Preaching about the story of Jesus’s passion and death on Palm Sunday, March 20, the Pope said that in addition to betrayal and injustice, Jesus experienced indifference as the crowds who had hailed his entry into Jerusalem, Herod, Pilate and even his own disciples washed their hands of him.

This is How to Talk to Your Friend Who is Gay

And God loves you as His son no matter what the situation is.”
