Pope Francis Hears Confessions at Roman Parish: God Lifts Us Up When We Hit ‘Rock Bottom’

Daniel Ibañez/CNAPope Francis heard confessions at a parish in Rome on Friday, March 17, 2023, and encouraged people to remember that God “holds out his hand and lifts us up whenever we realize that we are ‘hitting rock bottom.’”

The Pope underlined that God waits for us, especially in the sacrament of penance, where he said the Lord touches our wounds, heals our hearts, and leaves us with inner peace.
