Pope's remarks to US Lawmakers today

 "If politics must truly be at the service of the human person, it follows that it cannot be a slave to the economy and finance. Politics is, instead, an expression of our compelling need to live as one, in order to build as one the greatest common good: that of a community which sacrifices particular interests in order to share, in justice and peace, its goods, its interests, its social life. I do not underestimate the difficulty that this involves, but I encourage you in this effort."

—Pope Francis, 9/24/15, addressing US Congress, as widely quoted by
Bernie Sanders,
​ ​
2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate​
