- Editor, On Faith
Elizabeth Tenety is the editor of On Faith blog and producer of On Faith’s ‘Divine Impulses’ video feature.
“I love the fact that Pope Francis is out there talking about the beauty of the faith and what the faith is for, as opposed to what the faith is against,” the former presidential candidate said in an interview. “I think that what Pope Francis is doing really makes a lot of sense for Republicans.”
“I think that if the American church could get back to that, washing peoples feet, serving them, realizing that it’s not about lusting after power and political positions but it’s actually about loving your neighbor, serving, dying for others then man, that’s really what makes Jesus attractive and unleashes his grace on earth.“
