'Do Unto Others': Pope Francis’ Call to Action


'Do Unto Others': Pope Francis’ Call to Action

Rev. John Dear

“Hope and healing, peace and justice!” That’s what Pope Francis called us to this morning as he addressed Congress. “Summon the courage and the intelligence to resolve today’s many geopolitical and economic crises,” he said. “Our efforts must aim at restoring hope, righting wrongs, maintaining commitments, and thus promoting the well-being of individuals and of peoples. We must move forward together, as one, in a renewed spirit of fraternity and solidarity, cooperating generously for the common good.”


Will anyone in power, any candidate address these two issues? Bernie?


Enlightenment comes from within.


Superb news commentary, John!

Dorothy Day and Thomas Merton are two heroic figures, and they continue to inspire all to works of peace and justice.
