"It happened that a number of tax collectors and sinners came to sit at the table with Jesus and his disciples." Matt 9:10
Was it hard to bear with the critics fault finding about your table friendships? Did their envy of your popularity dampen your spirit? Did class distinctions disturb you?
Heart of Jesus yearning for a Church which is poor and for the poor...
Pope Francis: "Let us ask the Lord to help us understand the law of love. How good it is to have this law! How much good it does us to love one another, in spite of everything. Yes, in spite of everything!....We all have our likes and dislikes...to pray for a person with whom I am irritated is a beautiful step forward in love...Let us not allow ourselves to be robbed ot the ideal of fraternal love! (when still Archbishop)
