Get your ego out of the way

“No one can grow if he does not accept his smallness.” —Pope Francis

Pope Francis seemed to come out of nowhere and suddenly began speaking for the faith that so many hold onto in a time of religious struggle. His being elected is an act of God, for humility is the “road back” for Christianity and for all faiths.

If we seek to know God, we dare not play God, and too much religion has been so preoccupied. Dare we now, following Pope Francis’ example and leadership, defer to God?

Only in humility can we know the essence of all faith, of all relationship to God … love.
