God reveals himself to the humble and the poor.

Misfortune, and tragic events must not arouse curiosity in us or a search for someone responsible, instead they represent opportunities to reflect, to overcome the illusion of being able to live without God."

These were Pope Benedict XVIs words, at his Sunday Angelus, were he expressed his closeness to those in France who have been affected by recent flooding.

In this third Sunday of Lent, the Pope invited everyone to conversion, recalling how in the face of sin, God turns out to be "full of mercy," calling "sinners to avoid evil, to grow in his love and to help concretely a neighbour in need, to experience the joy of grace and not suffer eternal death.
