Vatican City, March 25 - As Holy Week begins,
Pope Francis on Monday will meet with Canadian Cardinal Marc
Ouellet and Brazilian Cardinal Joao Braz de Aviz, followed by
Mexico's Ambassador to the Holy See Hector Federigo Ling
Altamirano.
Pope Francis ushered in the beginning of celebrations
leading up to Easter with Palm Sunday Mass on St Peter's Square,
telling the crowds to feel "joy!".
"Do not be men and women of sadness: a Christian can
never be sad! Never give way to discouragement!".
The recently elected pope said in his homily to not lose
hope and to "go outside...to the ends of the earth and of
existence to bring Jesus!".
Jesus "awakened so many hopes in the heart, above all
among humble, simple, poor, forgotten people, those who don't
matter in the eyes of the world".
Francis added a personal note, saying "My grandmother used
to tell us children, a shroud has no pockets!".
The pope told the crowds waving olive branches that he
would see them soon in Brazil for World Youth Day.
"I look forward joyfully to this coming July in Rio de
Janeiro! Prepare well in your communities - prepare spiritually
above all - so that our gathering in Rio may be a sign of faith
for the whole world," the former Archbishop of Buenos Aires
said.
