Amoris Laetitia 144: The Emotions of Jesus

amoris laetitia memeOne of the most-often citation of Jesus’ emotional life is John 2:13, his anger. Pope Francis offers several alternatives:

144. As true man, Jesus showed his emotions. He was hurt by the rejection of Jerusalem (cf. Mt 23:27) and this moved him to tears (cf. Lk 19:41). He was also deeply moved by the sufferings of others (cf. Mk 6:34). He felt deeply their grief (cf. Jn 11:33), and he wept at the death of a friend
(cf. Jn 11:35). These examples of his sensitivity showed how much his human heart was open to others.
