Pope says saints were ordinary humans



November 19, 2013 - In a post on the social media on Tuesday, Pope Francis reminded the faithful worldwide that saints were simple human beings who loved God and their neighbours. “The saints were not superhuman. They were people who loved God in their hearts, and who shared this joy with others,” wrote the Pope on his Twitter account @pontifex. The previous day, Monday, he reminded Christians admitting our sins brings God’s peace. “Confessing our sins may be difficult for us, but it brings us peace. We are sinners, and we need God’s forgiveness,” the Pope wrote. God’s tireless forgiveness and mercy to repenting sinners has been a major theme of the papacy of 76-year old Argentine Pope, who was elected the head of the Catholic Church over 8 months ago on March 13.
