Be open to new people

“Befriend those who disagree,” Pope Francis urges. Talk to people who see things from a point of view different than yours. Make a special effort to engage with a diverse group of people, and you might be surprised what you’ll learn. Pope Francis has encouraged people to build unity across religions, too: “Dialogue is born…from a conviction that the other person has something good to say. It assumes that there is room in the heart for the person’s point of view, opinion, and proposal.”
