Voice of the Day: Pope Francis

Today’s voice of the day comes via Sojourners:

“It hurts me when I see a priest or a nun with the latest model car; you can’t do this. A car is necessary to do a lot of work, but please, choose a more humble one. If you like the fancy one, just think about how many children are dying of hunger in the world.”

— Pope Francis, speaking to a group of young priests and nuns.

According to Reuters, the new pope drives a Ford Focus. I’m sure the pope and I will have our differences, but I really appreciate the general direction he’s heading in.
