Quote of the Day (Fr. Thomas Reese, on the Pope’s Challenge to Clericalism)

“The pope has called for a new style of being church, a style that is pastoral and open.… But the church is not the pope. Unless bishops, priests and laity follow his example and embrace his priorities, there will not be permanent change in the church. The temptations to clericalism and self-centeredness are too strong. We have to stop admiring the pope and start imitating him.”— Fr. Thomas Reese, “The Francis Revolution,” National Catholic Reporter, March 6, 2015
