Jesus renews life, hope even when all seems lost, pope says

March 27, 2023

CNS: “Let yourself be pulled out” by Jesus during “these bad moments that happen to us all,” the pope said before praying the Angelus with some 35,000 visitors gathered in St. Peter’s Square March 26.

In his talk, Pope Francis reflected on the day’s Gospel reading from St. John in which Jesus weeps and prays at Lazarus’ tomb then calls to him to “Come out,” bringing him back to life.

“The message is clear: Jesus gives life even when it seems that all hope has gone,” the pope said.
