On Sunday Pope Francis said that with a growing sense of emptiness and insecurity gripping the world, Jesus Christ is needed more than ever before, since he alone knows how to answer humanity's deepest questions.
"The world needs Christ more than ever, needs his salvation and his merciful love," the Pope said June 19.
"Many people sense a void around and inside of them. Perhaps some of us too," he said, noting that others "live in restlessness and insecurity because of precariousness and conflict."
Each person needs to have "adequate responses" to their deepest existential questions, he said, explaining that since "Jesus knows the heart of man like no other," he is able to heal and to give life and consolation to humanity.
