Wind Chimes: 16 Mar 2013

Cardinal Bergoglio (now Pope Francis I)  washing the feet of a woman in Buenos Aires.

“How I would like a church that is poor, and for the poor.”

In my lifetime this has been the official position of the Roman Catholic Church. What is new  is that these are the unscripted words of a pope who has cooked his own meals, rode the bus to work, and walked in the slums of Buenos Aires. Perhaps the way the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church is daily lived by its pope is about to change.

Read how Pope Francis came to choose his name, and what others things he shared with journalists today (3/16/13) in Rome: How I would like a church that is poor, and for the poor by John Thavis on his blog.
