Wow. Pope Francis told Catholics to go make a "mess." How awesome is that?
Pope Francis reportedly said:
"I want to tell you something. What is it that I expect as a consequence of World Youth Day? I want a mess. We knew that in Rio there would be great disorder, but I want trouble in the dioceses!" he said, speaking off the cuff in his native Spanish. "I want to see the church get closer to the people. I want to get rid of clericalism, the mundane, this closing ourselves off within ourselves, in our parishes, schools or structures. Because these need to get out!"The call to Christ is a radical one. Love is countercultural. Embrace your inner radical.
Remember what Jesus said about lukewarm Christians.
