My favorite quotes from Pope Francis:
“The triumphalism of the church stops the church.” It becomes a church that journeys only halfway to its goal of salvation because people become satisfied with everything being “well organized — all the offices, everything in its place, everything beautiful, efficient.” Too many times, “we are faith-checkers instead of facilitators of the people’s faith.”
—Pope Francis in a homily during Mass with Vatican employees in the chapel at Casa Santa Marta May 29
