17 Quotes of Pope Francis on Service...because with us what is highest must be at the service of others Let us never forget that authentic power is service You tell us that to love God & neighbor is not something abstract, but profoundly concrete: it means seeing in every person the face of the Lord to be served, to serve him concretely. And you are dear brothers & sisters, the face of Jesus. These two criteria are like the pillars of true love: deeds, & the gift of self (in service)
