A Message from Pope Francis for Clergy to Be Humble Servants?

Pope Francis spoke recently to the heads of religious orders of nuns gathered in Rome from around the world. In his address, he admonished the clergy for their ambitions. Philip Pullella, a writer for Reuters, said this is a call from Pope Francis for servant leadership from all the clergy. Other writers have had different opinions about the Pope’s address, but we are greatly in favor of servant leadership. As a speaker at a Voice of the Faithful® event once said — Every sacristy should have a sign above the door reading “Servants Entrance.” Here is a link to Pullella’s story as it appeared in The Washington Post, “No Room for ‘Careerists’ or ‘Social Climbers’ among Clergy, Pope Says.”
