Five wounds of Christ: Pope urges recovery of traditional devotion
"By those wounds we were healed."
VATICAN CITY (CNS) - Pope Francis seems to be fixated on the wounds of Christ. And he has suggested that other Catholics might want to be as well.
"Now is the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in him. If God is glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself, and he will glorify him at once. My children, I will be with you only a little while longer. You will look for me, and as I told the Jews, 'Where I go you cannot come,' so now I say it to you." - John 13:31-33
