Pope Francis Quotes

Pope Francis is the 266th and present Pope of the Roman Catholic Church. He is also called the Bishop of Rome. Before he entered this field, he was a chemical technician and a nightclub bouncer. In 1969 however, he decided to become a Catholic priest. After Pope Benedict XVI resigned in February 2013, Bergoglio was anointed as the new Pope.

However, he is a simple man who decided to stay in Domus Sanctae Marthae’s guesthouse instead of the papal apartment offered to him. He also refused the papal mozetta cape that most popes wear and asked for his piscatory ring to be silver instead of regular gold. The actions justify the personality of someone who became a priest to encourage people to maintain their faith.

Pope Francis is not a supporter of Marxism, and he is a strong opposer of issues like overdevelopment and consumerism. He decided to help in restoring cordial diplomatic relations between U.S and Cuba. The pope’s speeches, sayings, and quotes are, therefore, a highlight of the issues that he chooses to work upon. Here are some such inspiring thoughts that are going to help you take the leap of faith.
