Ask yourself, do I bend down over someone in difficulty, or am I afraid of getting my hands dirty? Am I closed in on myself and my possessions, or am I aware of those in need of help? Do I serve only myself, or am I able to serve others, like Christ who came to serve even to the point of giving up his life? Do I look in the eye of those who are asking for justice, or do I turn my gaze aside to avoid looking them in the eye?
– Pope Francis, The Church of Mercy
