Thank Pope Francis for Serving the "Least of These"
Suddenly, the values of simplicity, humility, welcome, and the priority of
the poor have burst on to the international stage. Pope Francis has taken numerous actions showing us
his commitment to the poor, to peace, and creation--in sharp contrast to the
values of Washington, D.C.
The pope recently said, “The measure of the greatness of a society is
found in the way it treats those most in need, those who have nothing apart
from their poverty.” That’s also what the biblical prophets said and held
political leaders accountable to - and these words need to be heard in Washington today.
Thank Pope Francis for his leadership by sending the message below. Feel free to add your own words of thanks, as well.
Update: we published this opportunity months ago, but Pope Francis has been making headlines for releasing a major new statement that addresses income inequality, and for being voted Time's Person of the Year.
Dear Pope Francis,
Thank you for your work on behalf of the "least of these." Your humble leadership as pope has reminded us all of the gospel's commitment to serving the poor and vulnerable, which is a message Washington needs to hear now more than ever.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [City, State ZIP]
