Pope Francis: Within the family we learn how to forgive

(CNA/EWTN News) Pope Francis on the Feast of the Holy Family reflected on the power of forgiveness in families and compared everyday family life to an ongoing pilgrimage of prayer and love. “How important it is for our families to journey together towards a single goal! We know that we have a road to travel together; a road along which we encounter difficulties but also enjoy moments of joy and consolation,” the Pope said December 27 in his morning homily at St. Peter’s Basilica.
