I prefer a [parish] which is bruised, hurting and dirty because it has been out on the streets,
rather than a [parish] which is unhealthy from being confined and from clinging to its own security.

The [parish] is called to be the house of the Father, with doors always wide open … so that if someone,
moved by the Spirit comes here looking for God, he or she will not find a closed door.
The [parish] is
not a tollhouse; it is the house of the Father, where there is a place for everyone,
with all their problems.

– Pope Francis –

We agree.
