Always a Child of God: Pope Francis’ Wise Words

Isn’t it wonderful to know that no matter how our lives turn out, how many times we fail, or how many time we lose our way, you are always a child of God! How comforting is that fact? This is what the Pope reminded the entire Catholic Church in his homily during Mass on Thursday at the Casa Santa Marta.

At the close of his homily, he said these beautiful words, “We are saved in Jesus Christ and no one can take from us this ‘identity card.’ This is how I identify myself: as a child of God. What a beautiful identity!”

Want proof? See these Bible texts:

John 10:28-29  “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else. No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand.” 

John 1:12 “Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, he gave the right to become children of God.”

Galatians 3:26 “For you are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”
