Reasons to criticize the Church?


“There are plenty of reasons to criticize the Church. Too often the Church has been the reason people have turned their backs on God, thinking that the Christian faith has nothing to offer them. This state of affairs is sadly true. It’s also true, however, that when the Church opens its doors to the poor and the marginalized, God surprises us by turning the Church into the Good Samaritan who responds to the needs of the other with all the resources of God’s Kingdom: faith, hope, and love.”
– René Padilla, “Viñetas de una Iglesia Sierva.” Misión Magazine #62 (via Amahoro Africa)
