'Mr. Pope, sir, you are not equal to us.'

 |  NCR Today

Some more fun Francis candor:

This from this weekly audience:

“We are all needed in order to build this Temple. No one is secondary: ‘Ah, I am the most important one in the Church!’ No! We are all equal in the eyes of God. But, one of you might say, ‘Mr Pope, sir, you are not equal to us.’ But I am just like each of you. We are all equal. We are all brothers and sisters. No one is anonymous: all form and build the Church.”
