  • 2020: "Young people on the front line"

    Which young people should be the protagonists of history?

    Young agnostics? Yes.

    Young people who have a lukewarm faith? Yes.

    Young people who have estranged themselves from the Church? Yes.

    Every young person has something to say to others, to adults, to priests, to nuns, to bishops and to the Pope.



  • RMG – Pope Francis' invitation for Lent 2020: "Let yourself be reconciled with God"

    (ANS - Rome) - It is said that a woman once started asking people: "What is the most important thing in life for you?" The answers she obtained were predictable: health, love, money ... But when she asked the question to an elderly man, the answer was so simple and spontaneous that it did not require any comment: "To forgive." For this Lent, Pope Francis invites us not only to "forgive", but to allow ourselves to be reconciled with God. Even more, he invites us to "draw close to confessing our sins, to firmly believe in His mercy that frees us from our guilt."



    We are approaching the time of Lent which will prepare us for the Passover of the Lord.  At this Season, the Church proposes to us prayer, fasting, and charity help us along our path to Easter. With this my greeting I am proposing to you a reflection that has a great deal to do with an excellent way to prepare for Easter: The way to live more and better at all times by LOVING – but truly loving, as they say colloquially, “until it hurts.”
