Pope Francis' Ash Wednesday Homily: Pray for Peace

"Because the holy father was unable to preside with knee pain, Cardinal Pietro Parolin read Pope Francis’ homily while celebrating Ash Wednesday Mass at the Basilica of Santa Sabina on Rome’s Aventine Hill.

His homily was given on the day he declared to be of fasting for peace against war, and spoke of how we can be restored to a “to a living relationship with God, our brothers and sisters, and ourselves.”

Prayer, charity and fasting are not medicines meant only for ourselves but for everyone: they can change history.”
