Although I’m not a Catholic, it’s been pretty amazing to watch the historic visit of Pope Francis to our country this week. It strikes me that what really resonates about this head of state and leader of a world religion is his humility and wisdom. Yesterday, while I was working, I watched Pope Francis address the joint meeting of Congress on a live feed. I was very moved by his message, and probably equally moved by the slow, deliberate and even soft-spoken manner in which he delivered it. It seems pretty rare to hear a message completely void of bravado in a setting like that. Yet, he delivered it. If you haven’t seen the message, there is a transcript posted by the Washington Post, and it includes a video of the address. Pope Francis said many things that were very inspiring and challenging for how we live out faith day to day as humans and as a nation in our world today. This quote was just one of them.
