Pope at Mass: Jesus intercedes for us before the Father"He doesn’t talk: He loves. But there is one thing that Jesus does , today , I'm certain he does this. He shows his wounds to the Father and Jesus, with his wounds, prays for us as if to say to the Father: ' But, Father, this is the price of these! Help them, protect them. They are your children whom I have saved with these'.
Otherwise, why after the Resurrection did Jesus not have this glorious body, beautiful - with no bruises, no wounds from the scourging, everything nice? - but there were wounds. The Five Wounds . Why did Jesus want to bring them to heaven? Why ? To pray for us. To show the price [he paid] to the Father: 'This is the price, now do not abandon them. Help them'".
"We must have this faith - Pope Francis said – that right now Jesus intercedes before the Father for us, for all of us". And when we pray we must not forget to ask Jesus to pray for us :
"'Jesus , pray for me. Show the Father your wounds that are mine too , they are the wounds of my sin. They are the wounds of my problem at this moment in time'. Jesus the intercessor only has to show the Father his wounds. And this is happening today , at this very moment. Look at the words that Jesus said to Peter, 'Peter, I will pray for you that your faith may not fail'".
"We are confident that he is doing this for everyone". “We must have faith , concluded the Pope, "in this prayer of Jesus with his wounds before the Father ."
