It is only when we learn to cry with those who are suffering
that we can begin to understand them and to love them.
-- Pope Francis
Pope Francis’ visit to the United States last week offered both diplomats and disciples an opportunity to reflect on their responsibility for life and peace. There can be no silent spectators when our world, our planet, and human lives are threatened. Pope Francis’ words and actions remind of his namesake – St. Francis – and the humility that each of us must embrace to truly be A Channel of God’s Peace.
