Pope's quotes: We are all sinners

A quote from Pope Francis:

"All of us here are sinners, all of us bear the weight of our sins. I don't know if anyone believes he is free of sin. … If anyone thinks he is not a sinner, let him raise his hand. … We are all sinners. But he loves us, He loves us! And so let us – as sinners, but as sons of God, sons of our Father – let us all together offer a prayer for these people who suffer so many terrible things today in the world, so much evil. And when there are tears, the child looks for its mother; we too, sinners, we are children, we look for our Mother, so let us pray all together, each in his own language."

-- Address in Krakow, Poland, July 30, 2016
