Pope Francis in New Book on Our Lady: ‘Mary is normal, she is a woman that any woman in this world can imitate’

Emphasizing Mary’s rootedness in the people, Francis takes up one of the recurrent themes of his pontificate. “Normality is living among the people and like the people. It is abnormal to live without roots in a people, without connection with a historical people. In such conditions a sin – very much liked by Satan, , our enemy- is born : the sin of the elite. The elite does not know what it means to live among the people and when I speak of the elite I do not mean a social class: I speak of an attitude of the soul. One can belong to a Church elite. But, as the Council says in Lumen Gentiumthe Church is the faithful holy people of God. The Church is the people, the people of God. And the devil likes the elite.
