... and summoned the men He Himself had decided on. ? Mark 3:13

Simon is always listed first when all of the Apostles are named. This is an indication to us of a leadership role given to him by Jesus during their formation. It is this reality, along with a few other texts from the Gospels, that gives rise to the institution that we call the papacy. We understand the Bishop of Rome to be the first among equals of the bishops and thus the titular head of the Church. This is a role of authority and involves the exercise of power, however, properly understood, it is first and foremost a role of service to the People of God. The pope is the source and symbol of Catholic unity. Let us pray for our pope that he will humbly exercise his role for the good of the Church.

NEITHER SUBSTITUTION NOR ISOLATION
We can help someone with a difficult task in two ways. We can either do the task for him or do the task with him. Doing the task for him simply accomplishes the task. But doing the task with him develops our relationship with him.
