Pope Francis waved to a crowd at the Vatican last Wednesday and called for a less judgmental church, saying that it risked becoming a “small chapel.”
We are all dealing with something difficult in our lives. When I listen to my friends and family talk about their lives, I conscientiously try to listen with an open mind and without judgment and the benefits are astounding. I hear and see more than I could have ever imagined. But the minute I close my mind and heart to their stories, I start to live in my own little chapel.
I want my chapel to be very large with a lot of love and understanding.
