Pope calls bishops, Catholics to be bridge builders
What was it like visiting and hearing from Pope Francis last week in Washington, D.C.?
The overriding image I came away with from his visit was one of brotherly love. Pope Francis is a uniter, a bridge builder. He told us there were many issues that divide us, but we don’t have the time to remain divided. We must be united as a society and as a church. What resonated for me was his insistence that government always should be working for the common good. Though his tone was very strong, he always came back to: “We must do unto others as we would have them do unto us.” If we want to foster life, we must protect life. If we want freedom, we must protect freedom. If we want family life to flourish, we have to promote family life.
