'We go with joy,' Francis says, because the Lord walks with us

Reflecting on Tuesday's Responsorial Psalm, "Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord," Pope Francis reminds us that Jesus walks with us through times of holiness and times of sin, according to Vatican Radio.

"We go with joy," the Holy Father said Tuesday in his morning Mass homily at Casa Santa Marta, "because he accompanies us, he is with us ... and the Lord Jesus, even in our personal lives, accompanies us with the sacraments ... We encounter the Lord -- it is he who is beside us and accompanies us."
