Pope Francis: The mercy of God saves Man

The Mercy and forgiveness of God was at the heart of Pope Francis' Angelus address on Sunday.
The Pope taking his inspiration from the Gospel of St Luke said that Chapter 15 contains three parables of mercy, those of the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the story of the prodigal son.
He said that all three parables speak of the joy of God, which is the joy of forgiving. The Holy Father went on to say that this Gospel shows Christianity at work, adding that mercy is the true force that can save man and the world from the "cancer" that is the sin, evil, moral, and spiritual.
After the Angelus the Pope also recalled yesterday's beatification in Argentina of the priest José Gabriel Brochero.
