#ShortNews: Evangelizers are like angels, bringing good news to the world, Pope says

People long for God and his love, and so they need angels “in flesh and blood who draw near to dry tears, to say in Jesus’ name, ‘Do not be afraid,’” the pope said.

“Evangelizers are like angels, like guardian angels, messengers of good who do not deliver ready-made answers but share life’s questions” and know “the God of love” is needed to live, he said.

“And if, with this love of his, we were able to look into the hearts of people who, because of the indifference we breathe and the consumerism that flattens us, often pass before us as if nothing were wrong,” the pope said, “we would be able to see the need” for God, their search for everlasting love and their questions about the meaning of life, about pain, betrayal and loneliness.
