Pope’s quotes: God in history

A quote from Pope Francis:

“We must not focus on occupying the spaces where power is exercised, but rather on starting long-run historical processes. We must initiate processes rather than occupy spaces. God manifests himself in time and is present in the processes of history. This gives priority to actions that give birth to new historical dynamics. And it requires patience, waiting.”

-- From “A Big Heart Open to God,” America magazine Sept. 19, 2013.
