On Sunday Pope Francis said that we can’t improve our political landscape by observing and judging from afar, but that it involves personal involvement, which should always be done in a spirit of charity and helpfulness.
“Try to act personally instead of just looking and criticizing the work of others from the balcony,” the Pope said Oct. 1.
But make your advice constructive, he continued. “If the politician is wrong, go tell him, there are so many ways to say, ‘But I think that would be better like so, like so…’ Through the press, the radio... But say it constructively.”
“And do not look out from the balcony, look at her from the balcony waiting for her to fail.”
