Examples of Francis in a Sentence

  1. Father Paredes:

  2. Ivo Markovic:

  3. Pope Francis:

  4. Malik Yusef:

    You can't take -- unfalrly and unjustly -- your portion (of the planet), plus other people's portions away from them. It's a non-political issue. I don't think that should be an argument about that, it's an erroneous charge to say 'oh, (Pope Francis) is getting political because he's talking about the planet we live on.' Be serious!

  5. Bernie Sanders:

    Well, I am who I am. And what I believe in, and what my spirituality is about is that we're all in this together. That I think it is not a good thing to believe that as human beings we can turn our backs on the suffering of other people, and you know, this is not Judaism. This is what Pope Francis is talking about, that we cannot worship just billionaires and the making of more and more money. Life is more than that.
