The Peace Pulpit: Pope Francis gives us an extraordinary example of shepherding modeled on the example of Jesus.
The Peace Pulpit
The Peace Pulpit: "Each of us can do as Jesus did -- go to others wherever we can and bring that message of peace, reconciliation and love."
The Peace Pulpit: "Through faith we establish a relationship with Jesus who is alive."
The Peace Pulpit: "In our time, do we hear Jesus and his call to forgiveness, to love, to rejecting violence?"
The Peace Pulpit: "We have to reach out with that love that we experience and begin to spread it in our world."
The Peace Pulpit: This is the most important call we have, probably, to understand how God loves us, to love God, and then to love one another.
The Peace Pulpit: "[Pope Francis] uses that; that's his motto on his coat of arms: Miserando Atque Eligendo -- I am mercied and picked or chosen, loved."
The Peace Pulpit: "Surely it helps that we become a community. Your example of faith strengthens my faith. That's true for every one of us here."
The Peace Pulpit: "As Jesus was anointed priest, prophet and king, so are you anointed as a member of his body unto everlasting life."
The Peace Pulpit: "As we gather together as God's people, we are those who continue to build on the foundation that was laid previously 60 years ago in this place."
