Jesus and Pope Francis

I continue to read all I can find on Pope Francis as he seems to be saying and doing what Jesus might be saying today. I have just finished another biography of him and found his complete homily given at the Easter vigil. Here is a brief excerpt that I liked but will also give you the reference where you can find the entire homily.

"Let the risen Jesus enter your life, welcome him as a friend, with trust: he is life! If up till now you have kept him at a distance, step forward. He will receive you with open arms. If you have been indifferent, take a risk: you won’t be disappointed. If following him seems difficult, don’t be afraid, trust him, be confident that he is close to you, he is with you and he will give you the peace you are looking for and the strength to live as he would have you do."

I am reflecting on the last sentence, especially the fact that jJesus gives us the strength to live as he would have us live.
