"Comfortable living can cause gentrification of the heart." Pope Francis. All around San Francisco we see gentrification--which raises rents, pushes out the poor, the homeless, the middle class, causes much suffering for the majority, while the few have great comfort. While I live simply, I live very comfortably compared to the people I walk with daily, and I am well aware that my heart can become gentrified, that I can come to the point where I will put my own self-interests over the interests of the people I serve. That is why I always seek to put my own self-interests second to the interest of others, and live as simply as I can. We all need to be aware that our comfortable living can cause gentrification of our hearts, and that leads to self-centerednedss, and the destruction of the lives of others. Deo Gratias!Thanks be to God!
