There are some very profound and beautiful reflections by Pope Francis on the role of the theologian:

“Do not settle for a theology of the desk, your place for reflection are the boundaries.”

“And do not fall into the temptation to paint over them, to perfume them, to adjust them a bit and tame them,” Francis writes. “The good theologians, like the good shepherds, smell of the people and of the road and, with their reflection, pour oil and wine on the wounds of humankind.”
