Pope Francis

One of the marvelous things about Pope Francis is that he sees beyond rigid positions to what can be achieved by real love of humanity. His willingness to reach out to world leaders to encourage them to go beyond long standing squabbles is a good model for all of us. Locked in by tons of data about why we are right and others are wrong we have often ceased listening with an open heart. Venom dissipates when I am more interested in you as a person rather than someone I must defeat by mobilizing my responses. I hope today that I will shed the labels, hold my tongue and open my ears to the wonder of real dialogue and sharing.
