Catholic San Francisco: Pope Francis models ‘what it means to be fully human,’ says Jesuit | USF in the News | Scoop.it

Pope Francis is offering the contemporary world the example of Christ as a model of “what it means to be fully human,” in a way that is consistent with the previous two popes but breaks new ground in putting the Gospel into action, Jesuit Father James Hanvey said in an interview with Catholic San Francisco.“Most of the issues we’re fighting are not religious but what it means to be human,” said Father Hanvey, the current Lo Schiavo Chair in Catholic Social Thought at the Joan and Ralph Lane Center at the University of San Francisco. “What does it mean to have a destiny, more than materialism? There’s a deep hunger in the human spirit that contemporary life does not answer.” [via @catholic_sf]
