Vatican City, September 16 - Pope Francis said in a
homily Monday that political leaders must be humble and love the
people they govern, adding that the faithful must not shy away
from the political arena.
"He who governs must love his people because a leader who
does not love is unable to govern. At the most, he can act as a
disciplinarian, and put things in order, but not govern", the
Argentine pontiff said at the Saint Martha's House residence
where he lives at the Vatican.
Francis added that every man or woman who comes into
government leadership "must ask himself two questions: Do I love
my people, so as to serve them better? And am I humble and do I
listen to everyone else, all the different opinions, to chose
the better road?"
The Pontiff added failure to ask these questions would
result in unsatisfactory government.
He went on to use the example of St. Paul, who urged the
leaders of his time to pray "for all those that are in power, so
that we can have a calm and tranquil life".
