“I believe this is a time of mercy. The Church is showing her maternal side, her motherly face, to a humanity that is wounded. She does not wait for the wounded to knock on her doors, she looks for them on the streets, she gathers them in, she embraces them, she takes care of them, she makes them feel loved. And I am ever more convinced of it, this is a kairos, our era is a kairos of mercy, a time of opportunity.”
- From The Name of God is Mercy: Pope Francis in conversation with Andrea Tornielli.
