Pope's quotes: Live within the world

A quote from Pope Francis:

“Do not be extraneous to this world; live within it like leaven in the dough. My invitation to you is simple but bold: know how to make the difference with a high quality formation. Find methods and ways of not passing unnoticed behind the scenes of society and culture, without arousing clamor, not with projects full of rhetoric. Know how to distinguish yourselves for your constant attention to the person, especially the least among us, those who are cast aside, denied and forgotten. Know how to be noticed not for your 'facade', but for educational coherence rooted in the Christian vision of humanity and society.”

-- Audience with members of Association of Catholic School Parents in Italy, Dec. 7, 2015
