Pope Francis: Shun "It's all about me!"
In today’s news from Reuters in Vatican City - Pope Francis urged Roman Catholic leaders to avoid “it’s all about me” closed system but that the Church's credibility rested on its ability to help the poor and persecuted way out on the margins of society.
Francis called for a more merciful and compassionate Church in the homily of a Mass in St. Peter's Basilica for new cardinals who were installed on Saturday. He urged the Cardinals to pay attention to the imprisoned, sick, unemployed and persecuted and to those who have lost their faith, as well as atheists.
"The way of the Church is precisely to leave her four walls behind and to go out in search of those who are distant, those on the outskirts of life," the pope said.
"We will not find the Lord unless we truly accept the marginalized (people) . . . Truly the Gospel of the marginalized is where our credibility is at stake."
