Priests, bishops and other leaders of the Catholic Church would do well to follow Pope Francis’ lead and get out of the chapels to break bread with the homeless and others living in despair.
The pope had done it as archbishop of Buenos Aires to let people know they were not alone and show that someone cared. Pope Francis continues to provide one-on-one emergency assistance to the poor, aged and sick through Archbishop Konrad Krajewski, The Associated Press reports.
This kind of WWJD, or “walk with Jesus daily,” behavior needs to spread so that the church serves the poor and needy throughout the planet. It would help improve the image of the church worldwide.
