Pope's quotes: Don't neglect the believer

A quote from Pope Francis:

“Without realizing, we have generated a lay elite, believing that committed laypeople are only those who work in relation "priests' matters", and we have forgotten and neglected the believer who very often exhausts his or her hope in the daily struggle to live the faith.”

-- Address to participants in the Pontifical Commission for Latin America plenary assembly, April 26, 2016
