Pope: World Day of the Sick , "we are called to be conformed to Christ, the Good Samaritan of the Afflicted "
The test of true faith is the gift of self , "especially for those who do not deserve it , for those who suffer, for those who are marginalized ." Jesus did not take away from human disease and suffering, but transformed and reduced it. Reduced, because they no longer have the last word, instead it is new life in fullness; transformed , because in union with Christ, they can be transformed from negative to positive .

Pope: "A missionary and pastoral conversion" for a Church open to changing its structures
by Franco Pisano
The Apostolic Exhortation " Evangelii Gaudium”. Evangelization, the programmatic manifesto of the papacy, must find "new paths" and "creative methods" . A "healthy decentralization”. An economic system "unjust at its roots". "Authentic attacks on religious freedom". "There is an inseparable link between our faith and the poor ". " No one can demand from us that we relegate religion to the secret intimacy of the individual". Islamic countries must "ensure freedom to Christians to worship and live their faith."
