CWN Editor's Note: During his October 23 Sunday Angelus address, Pope Francis reflected on Luke 18:9-14, the Gospel of the day.

“Brothers, sisters, the Pharisee and the publican concern us closely,” he said. “Thinking of them, let us look at ourselves: let us confirm whether, in us, as in the Pharisee, there is the conviction of one’s own righteousness that leads us to despise others.”
