Pope’s quotes: ‘If evil is contagious, so is good’

NCR Staff  |  Mar. 6, 2015 The Francis Chronicles

A quote from Pope Francis:“Today, the Gospel passage of the healing of the leper tells us that if we wish to be true disciples of Christ, we are required to become, joined with Him, instruments of His merciful love, setting aside every type of marginalization. To be ‘imitators of Christ’ before the poor or sick, we must not be afraid to look them in the eye and to draw closer with tenderness and compassion, to touch and embrace them. … We too need to be accepted by them. A gesture of tenderness, a gesture of compassion. … If evil is contagious, so is good. Therefore, good must increasingly abound in us. Let us be ‘infected’ by good, and spread good to others!”
