Some more challenging words from Pope Francis recently:
“I prefer a church which is bruised, hurting and dirty because it has been out on the streets, rather than a church which is unhealthy from being confined and from clinging to its own security,” he wrote. “I do not want a church concerned with being at the center and then ends up by being caught up in a web of obsessions and procedures.”
Is that the case with any of our churches? What price are we willing to pay to move our churches from security to the street?
