"Let me simply say that the vessel of mercy is our sin"

Jubilee of priests. Three meditations of Pope Francis
Pope Francis

"The prodigal son looks at the pigs as they eat their husk and he envies them. He feels homesick...perhaps we can feel how the heart of our Father. It was a heart beating with worry, as he went up onto the roof to look out. What was he looking at? The possible return of his son...mercy makes us experience our freedom and, as a result, the freedom of God himself,
