I really adore this man! He is so … genuine!
Pope Francis ~
“It is not ‘progressive’ to try to resolve problems by eliminating a human life.”
“It is not necessary to believe in God to be a good person. In a way, the traditional. Notion of God is outdated. One can be spiritual but not religious. It is not necessary to go to church and give money — for many, nature can be a church. Some of the best people in history do not believe in God, while some of the worst deeds were done in His name.”
“How can it be that it is not a news item when an elderly homeless person dies of exposure but it is news when the stock market loses two points?”
“If our hearts are closed, if our hearts are made of stone, the stones find their way into our hands and we are ready to throw them.”
“The corrupt man is the one who sins but does not repent, who sins and pretends to be Christian, and it is this double life that is scandalous. The corrupt man does not know humility, he does not consider himself in need of help, he leads a double life.”
“We have only one heart, and the same wretchedness which leads us to mistreat an animal will not be long in showing itself in our relationships with other people. Every act of cruelty towards any creature is contrary to human dignity.”
