Pope’s Quotes: No small chapel

 |  The Francis Chronicles

My favorite quotes from Pope Francis:
 

“This church with which we should be thinking is the home of all, not a small chapel that can hold only a small group of selected people. We must not reduce the bosom of the universal church to a nest protecting our mediocrity.”

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

Read our new blog series, La Iglesia Hispana, focusing on Hispanic Catholics, the church's new emerging majority.
