Pope Francis in Havana: We do not serve ideas, we serve people
On September 20, 2015, before hundreds of thousands of people and a gigantic image of the Communist revolutionary fighter Che Guevara, Pope Francis delivered a homily that called on people to not forget the most vulnerable in society.
"Serving others chiefly means caring for their vulnerability. Caring for the vulnerable of our families, our society, our people... Being a Christian entails promoting the dignity of our brothers and sisters, fighting for it, living for it.”
The importance of a nation is derived from how well it helps the most needy, the Pope said. Service must be free and done for the sake of love. It also should serve people, not ideas or ideologies.
