Pope Francis said on Thursday to always be humble when serving others, especially the least of these, remembering how much you yourself have received that you did not deserve.
"When you do some activity for the 'little ones,' the excluded and the least, never do it from a pedestal of superiority," Pope Francis said Nov. 23. "Think rather that all that you do for them is a way of returning what you have received for free."
"Make a welcoming and friendly space for all the least of these of our time to come into your life: the marginalized, men and women who live in our streets, parks or stations; the thousands of unemployed, young people and adults," he continued.
As well as the "many sick people who do not have access to adequate care; many abandoned elders; mistreated women; immigrants seeking a respectable life; all those who live in the existential suburbs, deprived of dignity and even the light of the Gospel."
