CWN Editor's Note: In an address to participants in the general chapter of the Cistercian order, Pope Francis spoke of “a constant effort of conversion from a closed ego to an open ego, from a heart centred on itself to a heart that comes out of itself and goes towards others.”

He added, “And this, by analogy, also applies to the community: from a self-referential community to an extrovert community, in the good sense of the word, welcoming and missionary. “
