· At the Angelus the Popes thinks of health-care workers ·
“Reserves of love” for the suffering. This is how the Pope described doctors, nurses and all those who guarantee religious assistance in clinics and hospitals through their tireless work beside the sick. Speaking to the faithful who took part in the recitation of the Angelus in St Peter's Square on Sunday, 1 July, Benedict XVI said that Jesus “came to set human beings free in their totality”. And he stressed “the importance of an approach to the suffering which is impressed above all with humanity and love. Reaffirming what he had written previously in Deus Caritas Est , the Pope recalled that in this “precious service” professional competence is of course necessary, but “this alone is not enough”, he said, “for it has to do with “human beings, who need humanity and the attention of the heart”. Therefore, he concluded, a “formation of the heart” is essential.
