Francis blesses the sculpture 'Jesus the Homeless' by Timothy Schmalz
during a general audience in December 2013.
“The Son of God came into this world as a homeless person,” the Pope said. “The Son of God knew what it was to start life without a roof over his head.”
“We can find no social or moral justification, no justification whatsoever, for lack of housing. There are many unjust situations, but we know that God is suffering with us, experiencing them at our side. He does not abandon us.”
“We know that Jesus wanted to show solidarity with every person. He wanted everyone to experience his companionship, his help, his love. He identified with all those who suffer, who weep, who suffer any kind of injustice.”
By this twisted logic we must ask, "So is a child who was born in the hospital also homeless Francis?"
