Proper perspective aids understanding, Pope says during parish visit
CWN - May 27, 2013
Pope Francis visited the parish of Sts. Elizabeth and Zechariah, on the outskirts of Rome, on Sunday, May 26.
During his visit the Pope administered First Communion to young members of the parish, and in his homily he engaged in an informal question-and-answer session with them, speaking about the Virgin Mary’s visit to St. Elizabeth during her pregnancy.
Commenting on the placement of the parish, the Pope said that it might have a proper perspective on the affairs of Rome. “We understand reality better not from the center, but from the outskirts,” he said.
