I am not Catholic, but I really like a lot of things I read from the new Pope. Am going to have to look into him more seriously.

Quotes from the Evangelii Guardium:

“I prefer a Church which is bruised, hurting and dirty because it has been out on the streets, rather than a Church which is unhealthy from being confined and from clinging to its own security.” 

“The Eucharist, although it is the fullness of sacramental life, is not a prize for the perfect but a powerful medicine and nourishment for the weak.”
