A few of my favorite Pope quotes:
“I believe in God, not in a Catholic God; there is no Catholic God. There is God and I believe in Jesus Christ, his incarnation…”
“Each of us has a vision of good and of evil. We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is Good. … Everyone has his own idea of good and evil and must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them. That would be enough to make the world a better place.”
…the church has been run from the Vatican, and the Vatican pursues its own interests.
“The church is or should go back to being a community of God’s people, and priests, pastors, and bishops, who have the care of souls, are at the service of the people of God.”
“Heads of the church have often been narcissists, flattered and thrilled by their courtiers,” he said at another point. “The court is the leprosy of the papacy.”
