Pope Francis on Witnesses of Mercy

Pope Francis preaches of Witnesses of Mercy before World Lutheran Federation in Sweden for 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation
During Pope Francis' visit to Sweden to mark the 500th Anniversary of the beginning of the Reformation, the Holy Father gave a homily which tied his favorite theme of mercy with ecumenism. 

Catholics and Lutherans established a rapprochement on Justification in 1999, yet people still want to fight the Protestant Reformation today.

Pope Francis' quote underlines the leitmotif of companionship, albeit this time in the guise of mercy.
