Priests Ordained by Pope: He Kissed Our Hand and We Could Not Believe It
Last edited 2nd June 2014

The moment was truly unforgettable in more ways than once, for Eduardo Andres and Juan Pablo. They were two of 13 priests the Pope ordained at St. Peter's Square, a tradition that dates back to 1993: "I was very excited when the Pope finally kissed our hands. I was really excited. I thought that he would greet the cardinals that were waiting on the side. But he didn't. He went one by one, kissing our hands. I couldn't believe it.”

Pope Francis to Newly Ordained: Always be Merciful
Last edited 11th May 2014

In his homily at an ordination mass on Vocations Sunday, Pope Francis urged those becoming priests to follow Christ’s example of mercy in the sacrament of confession. “Never grow tired of being merciful! Please! You have the capacity to forgive as did the Lord, who did not come to condemn, but to forgive! Have mercy, a lot!” he urged the 13 men being ordained to the priesthood in St. Peter’s Basilica on May 11. “If you come to have concerns about being too much of a ‘forgiver,’ think of that saintly priest...who went before the tabernacle and said, ‘Lord, forgive me if I have forgiven too much. But you have given me the worst example!’”

“Generation Maybe”
Last edited 24th March 2014
