Mayors are called to be 'mediators,' says Pontiff
April 07, 2014
In a brief April 5 address to Italian mayors, Pope Francis said that mayors are called to be “mediators” in the midst of their people's needs.
Rather than corrupt “intermediaries” who exploit others, mayors are called to the exhausting task of being with the people in order “to create unity, to make peace, to resolve problems and resolve the needs of the people,” the Pope added.
