Quote of the Day: Pope Francis
“You can’t govern without loving the people and without humility! And every man, every woman who has to take up the service of government, must ask themselves two questions: ‘Do I love my people in order to serve them better? Am I humble and do I listen to everybody, to diverse opinions in or to choose the best path?’ If you don’t ask those questions, your governance will not be good.”
– Pope Francis, quoted in a letter by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to members of Congress before the U.S. government shut down.
Tell your members of Congress to pass a responsible budget that addresses sequestration, end the U.S. government shutdown, and raise the debt ceiling without political games.
