Our age, marked by old and new wounds,
requires us to be builders of relationships and communion,
open, trusting and awaiting in hope
the newness that the kingdom of God wishes to bring about even today.
For it is a kingdom of forgiven sinners called to bear witness
to the Lord’s ever-present compassion.
“For his mercy endures forever”.
(Pope Francesco, Letter to priests on the 160th anniversary of the death of the holy Curé of Ars, 4 August 2019)
Under the direction of Paolo Ondarza
