A Tiny, Brilliant Spark from The Vatican

Asked what it meant for him to “think with the church,” a phrase used by the Jesuit founder St. Ignatius, Francis said,

This church with which we should be thinking is the home of all, not a small chapel that can hold only a small group of selected people. We must not reduce the bosom of the universal church to a nest protecting our mediocrity(blogger’s emphasis).
