20 Oct Getting Mission Focused
Pope Francis ended the synod Sunday by celebrating the life of Paul VI, the pope who prophetically saw much of what we were doing to ourselves and begged us to pay attention. Now Pope Francis, in a very different style, makes his own pleas. And, yes, on many of the same issues as Paul VI: for the sake of women, men, human life, families, the poor, and peace. Like Paul VI did, he urges Catholics to take seriously the missionary mandate in the Bible.
