Catholic or not, don't care. Tell me these words are not full of comfort and joy

"Let us ... remember Peter: three times he denied Jesus, precisely when he should have been closest to him; and when he hits bottom he meets the gaze of Jesus who patiently, wordlessly, says to him: 'Peter, don't be afraid of your weakness, trust in Me.' Peter understands, he feels the loving gaze of Jesus and he weeps. How beautiful is this gaze of Jesus — how much tenderness is there! Brothers and Sisters, let us never lose trust in the patience and mercy of God!'

— Pope Francis, Homily on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 7, 2013
