Pope Francis: If the Jubilee doesn’t touch your pocket it isn’t a true Jubilee

Lent is a time especially focused on works of charity and penance, and this Lent comes in the Year of Mercy. In his Ash Wednesday audience, Pope Francis encouraged us to share what we have. “It is a jubilee year (...) for converting, so that our heart may become larger, more generous, more a child of God, with more love. I’ll tell you one thing: if this wish, if the Jubilee does not touch the pocket, it is not a true jubilee. Do you understand?” Tags: Solidarity, Penance, Ivory Coast, Africa
