pope 2BEAUTIFUL QUOTES FROM POPE FRANCIS

  • “POVERTY CALLS US TO SOW HOPE…….POVERTY IS THE FLESH OF THE POOR JESUS, IN THAT CHILD WHO IS HUNGRY ,IN THE ONE WHO IS SICK, IN THOSE UNJUST SOCIAL STRUCTURES”
  • “To love God and neighbor is not something abstract, but profoundly concrete: it means seeing in every person and face of the Lord to be served, to serve him concretely. And you are, dear brothers and sisters, in the face of Jesus.”
  • “When we are generous in welcoming people and sharing something with them—some food, a place in our homes, our time—not only do we no longer remain poor: we are enriched. I am well aware that when someone needing food knocks at your door, you always find a way of sharing food; as the proverb says, one can always ‘add more water to the beans’! Is it possible to add more water to the beans?…Always?…….and you do so with love, demonstrating that true riches consist not in materials, things, but in the heart!”
  • “A way has to be found to enable everyone to benefit from the fruits of the earth, and not simply to close the gap between the affluent and those who must be satisfied with the crumbs falling from the table, but above all to satisfy the demands of justice, fairness and respect for every human being.”
    “Among our tasks as witnesses to the love of Christ is that of giving a voice to the cry of the poor.”
  • “The times talk to us of so much poverty in the world and this is a scandal. Poverty in the world is a scandal. In a world where there is so much wealth, so many resources to feed everyone, it is unfathomable that there are so many hungry children, that there are so many children without an education, so many poor persons.  Poverty today is a cry.”
