Jesus invites us to abide in Him so as to bear much fruit (see Jn 15:5-9). Abiding in the Lord means finding the courage to step outside of ourselves to take care of others' needs and give a Christian witness in the world. #Prayer  #UnityOfChristians 

As he did in Bethlehem, so too with us, God loves to work wonders through our poverty. He placed the whole of our salvation in the manger of a stable. He is unafraid of our poverty, so let us allow his mercy to transform it completely!

We thank God for for the good things that have taken place during the pandemic, for the many people who, without making noise, have tried to make the weight of this trial more bearable.

Like the Magi, we too are called to allow ourselves to be attracted, illuminated and converted by Christ: He is the journey of faith, through prayer and the contemplation of God’s works, which continually fill us with every new joy and wonder.

May the Child of Bethlehem help us, then, to be generous, supportive and helpful, especially towards those who are vulnerable, the sick, those unemployed or experiencing hardship.

I am praying for the United States of America, shaken by the recent attack on Congress. I pray for those who lost their life. Violence is always self-destructive. I urge everyone to promote a culture of encounter and of care to construct the common good.

God overcomes the world's evil by taking it upon himself. This is also how we can lift others up: not by judging, not by suggesting what to do, but by becoming neighbours, empathizing, sharing God's love.

How often in the Bible the Lord asks us to welcome migrants and foreigners, reminding us that we too are foreigners!

A person's dignity does not depend on them being a citizen, a migrant, or a refugee. Saving the life of someone fleeing war and poverty is an act of humanity. #WithRefugees 

Dear young people, never get tired of being instruments of peace and joy among your peers!

The earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth.

There is no such thing as harmless disinformation; trusting in falsehood can have dire consequences.

Jesus Christ is risen! Love has triumphed over hatred, life has conquered death, light has dispelled the darkness!

I invite you not to build walls but bridges, to conquer evil with good, offence with forgiveness, to live in peace with everyone.

Children must be able to play, study and grow in a peaceful environment. Woe to anyone who stifles their joyful impulse to hope!

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.
