(NATIONAL CATHOLIC REGISTER) — VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis devoted his Oct. 28 homily to the fact that Jesus prayed for his apostles and the people he encountered on earth, and he continues to pray for us in heaven.

When we pray to Jesus, the Pope said, Jesus shows his Father in heaven the wounds on his hands, feet and his side, the price of our salvation, which “is as if he is saying: Father, may this not be lost.”

The Holy Father directed his homily to those gathered in the St. Martha guest house of the Vatican.
