While meeting with a group of nuns and priests in training the Pope was quoted saying:
“A car is necessary to do a lot of work, but please, choose a more humble one. If you like the fancy one, just think about how many children are dying of hunger in the world.”
The Pope was spotted, driving what he preaches, when he arrived this week arriving at the Papal Summer Home in a Ford Focus.

Is it possible that God has blessed us so that we can be a blessing to others?
There’s a popular bumper sticker that reads “God Bless America,” but hasn’t America already been blessed? It’s easy for us to fall into a mindset of viewing “our” world as “the” world, because it’s all we generally see. We’re constantly bombarded with images of the latest styles and models of everything, and it can easily leave us feeling like what we have isn’t enough because we see people that have even more than us. But how does what we have compare to what most people in the world have? Maybe what we have is enough; maybe it’s more than enough. Maybe God has blessed us with everything we have so we can bless and give to others. – Rob Bell/Nooma-Rich
