Pope Francis in his own words – Homily at Mass of Canonization of St. Junipero Serra #Popeinusa


We continue to urge you to let Pope Francis speak his message to you in his own words.  Here is a  link to both the full-text and video-on-demand of the homily at yesterday’s mass of canonization for St. Junipero Serra


As you read and/or listen, we suggest you attend to a few key things:

  • How many times does Pope Francis urge people to “go”?
  • How many times does Pope Francis use a variation on the words “joy” and “rejoice”?
  • To whom is this message addressed?
