WYD w/ Pope Francis 2013

Something i took away from the coverage of WYD in Rio today(on EWTN)was Fr John Paul reflecting on Pope Francis words. He basically said that before we go out into the world to evangelize we need to begin in our own home. Blessed Mother Therese said something very simlar and here I'll quote,
It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.
I'm going to be tied up for awhile today. My husband's aide comes at noon or a little after. When i get a minute later on I would like to come back and talk about this in a separate entry.For now we can reflect on that.Also,be sure to catch all the coverage of Pope Francis visit to Rio and WYD 2013 on EWTN.The rest of the media is more or less ignoring it.They think there's more important things going on in the world. Of course,there are important events in the world but this is the life of our faith.The Church IN the world.Hope you get a chance to watch EWTN or go to the website for coverage.
