“In a time where everything is in doubt, in dispute and denial, where walls are built among people instead of bridges, where nationalism, fanaticism, terrorism, xenophobia, intolerance and a crisis of principles and values exist, in a time when humanity is conquered by anger and rage, anguish and fear for today and tomorrow, Jesus Christ’s words of comfort come to heal our souls and our minds:

“Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid” (Marc 6/50)

Jesus is indeed with us, among us, walking beside us. Barriers and borders are eliminated by His eternal words that overflow us with hope. The revival of the universal fundamental principles and values, the promotion of the culture of love, peace, reconciliation and co existence between peoples and religions is indeed our hope, the hope of the entire world. Society today looks desperately for workers of love, of mutual respect, of peace makers. Workers that reject social exclusion, discrimination, terrorism, violence and introversion and who attain the future with optimism, with a vision, ready to serve equality, fraternity, justice, tolerance, solidarity, human dignity and who support the vulnerable, the poor and the marginalised.”
