For a lapsed Catholic, I’ve been leaning pretty hard on Pope Francis lately. Last February. The pontiff weighed in on the border wall. Our challenge, he said, is “not to raise walls but bridges, to not respond to evil with evil, to overcome evil with good.”
One month later, in an interview with Italian street paper Scarp de’ Tenis (Tennis Shoes), he said we should give to homeless people without judgment, simply because we have the privilege to do so.
