The Challenge Pope Francis Left for Us

Twenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time

[Pope Francis] has beckoned to us to rise above all those things that are superficial in life, and to go deeper in our own faith, because the world needs it so much. . .  The theme throughout his trip is one of taking responsibility.  Responsibility for those less fortunate than us.  Responsibility for taking action, because the universal call of the Church is holiness of life, and holiness of life demands action.

Pope Francis“It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell, where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.
