We cannot tolerate or turn a blind eye to racism and exclusion in any form. At the same time, we have to recognize that violence is self-destructive and self-defeating. Nothing is gained by violence and so much is lost. Let us pray for reconciliation and peace.
We have such need of the light and strength of the Holy Spirit! The Church needs it to walk harmoniously and courageously in the witness of the Gospel. And the entire human family needs it so as to move out of this crisis more united and not more divided.
Let us invoke the Holy Spirit. May He might give light and strength to the Church and society in the #Amazon region, sorely tried by the pandemic. I pray for the poorest of that precious Region and the world. And I plead that they may not lack health care.
