On Divine Mercy Sunday, Pope Francis reflected on Christ's wounds, which he said contain the difficulties and persecutions endured by people who suffer today.
"Touch the wounds of Jesus," Pope Francis said April 28. "The wounds of Jesus are a treasure from which mercy comes."
Pope Francis said that in visiting someone who is suffering, one can touch the wounds of Christ.
"Let us draw close to Jesus and touch his wounds in our brothers," he said before leading pilgrims in St. Peter's Square in the Regina Coeli prayer.
