Oh i just love how Pope Francis responded to the inappropriate gift by the Bolivian President.
The Bolivian President presented a crucifix tied to a hammer and a sickle as a gift to the Pope and the Pope replied “that’s not right.”
A crucifix is a sacred symbol of our Christian faith. The gift is really a very inappropriate gift. Pope Francis was firm that it is not right but at the same time did it in a gentle and loving way. I believe that we can all learn from this example of Pope Francis when it comes to correcting others in a brotherly and charitable way.
