WATCH Pope Francis: “I want to send you all to heaven!”

Says "the Lord never tires of forgiving" during visit to Porziuncola

Last week, Pope Francis made a trip to Assisi to visit the Porziuncola inside the Basilica of St Mary of the Angels — considered the most sacred place of Franciscan spirituality, as Joan Lewis writes (Cf. http://aleteia.org/2016/07/05/pope-francis-to-visit-the-most-sacred-place-of-franciscan-spirituality/). In his brief remarks, he spoke of mercy, and recalled the father of the Prodigal Son.
