Today “Laudato Si’ Week” begins, to educate more and more to listen to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor. I thank the numerous participating organizations, and I invite everyone to participate.
The commitment to #peace and #fraternity always originates from the grass roots: everyone can do something, however small. Everyone can be dedicated, even in small ways, to build fraternity, to work toward reconstructing what is broken instead of fomenting violence.
Today I wish to lay upon the Lord’s altar the sufferings of the people of #Myanmar and pray that God will convert all hearts to peace. Do not lose hope: Jesus is interceding before the Father for all of us, that he keep us from the evil one and set us free from the power of evil.
