Pope’s quotes: Open doors

 |  The Francis Chronicles

A quote from Pope Francis:

“Who are we to close doors? In the early Church, even today, there is the ministry of the ostiary (usher). And what did the ostiary do? He opened the door, received the people, allowed them to pass. But it was never the ministry of the closed door, never.”
