A Humble Pope
I was shocked to see the Pope kneeling & kissing the shoes of Sudanese politicians recently. Would such a cringe-making display of humility have any real effect on politicians dealing with a conflict? Who can say. But, the first thing that came to my mind, and it seems many others, is that Pope Francis has become almost famous for NOT kneeling in front of the Blessed Sacrament.
" is it humility that causes one to stand when others kneel, to keel when others stand, and to constantly be seeking out opportunities to single oneself out and to be different?"
