It was a rainy day in Rome for the Sunday Angelus, so Pope Francis told the faithful gathered in St. Peter of a saying from his native Argentina: “A good face in bad weather”.
Thus, putting on a “good face,” the Holy Father welcomed the “socially distanced” crowd of umbrella-armed pilgrims and reminded them of the lessons from the reading from the Gospel of Matthew (cf. 21:28-32).
It is the familiar story of a father who asks two sons to work in the vineyard. One says he will but doesn’t. The other says he won’t but does.
