“God loves us the way we are, and no sin, fault or mistake of ours makes him change his mind.  As far as Jesus is concerned – as the Gospel shows – no one is unworthy of, or far from, his thoughts.  No one is insignificant.  He loves all of us with a special love; for him all of us are important: you are important!  God counts on you for what you are, not for what you possess.” –Pope Francis
