Pope Francis’ recent interview with America Magazine has been getting a lot of coverage from the media, both Catholic and non-Catholic. Of particular interest were the comments the Pope made regarding what he saw as a tendency within some Church circles to focus on hot button social issues at the expense of the Gospel. This is unfortunate because the Pope had many great things to say about a range of topics.

That is why over the next week Franciscan Mission Service will be releasing, via Facebook and Twitter, a series of images highlighting lesser-known quotes from this important interview. (The first image just went up today!) Our Pope is a Jesuit but he also has a Franciscan heart and we want to share what he has shared of that heart!
