His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI, being himself
Click here to see the Holy Father with children in rehabilitation and recovery from drug addiction. He prophetically spoke to those who traffic in drugs while visting this Franciscan farm, a place of healing and wholeness, in Brazil to which he gave $100,000.00.
His Holiness said to "1,500 recovering addicts wearing white shirts with yellow sleeves, representing the Vatican's flag, that they must become 'ambassadors of hope:' "'The Lord has given you this opportunity for physical and spiritual recovery, so vital for you and your families. In turn, society expects you to spread this precious gift of health among your friends and all the members of the community.'" Sounds like an admonition not just for those in recovery, but for all Christians!
Where do we find Jesus? For those possessed of His Spirit, who are the ones who see Him, in places like Fazenda de Esperanca, just as palpably as those who saw him ascend to heaven.
A heartfelt shout out to my brother, Alex Vitus, for the collage link!
