Life is grounded in three fundamental and closely connected relationships: the Relationship with God, with our neighbour and with the earth. #SeasonOfCreation 

As many spiritual masters have taught us, heaven, earth, sea, and every creature have an iconic capacity or mystical capacity to bring us back to the Creator and to communion with creation. #SeasonOfCreation  #GeneralAudience 

Today, the nature that surrounds us is no longer admired, but “devoured”. We must return to contemplation; so as not to be distracted by a thousand useless things, we must find silence; for the heart not to become sick, we must be still. #SeasonOfCreation 

Everyone’s talents and involvement are needed to redress the damage caused by human abuse of God’s creation. #SeasonOfCreation 

The pandemic has shown us that we cannot live without one another. The United Nations was established to bring nations together, to be a bridge between peoples. Let us make good use of this institution in order to build together the future we all desire. #ONU75  @UN 

We need to dismantle the perverse logic that links personal and national security to the possession of weaponry. This logic serves only to increase the profits of the arms industry, while fostering a climate of distrust and fear between persons and peoples. #UN75  @UN 

Saint Michael, help us in the battle for salvation we are fighting. Saint Gabriel, bring us the good news that Jesus has saved us, and grant us hope. Saint Raphael, take our hands and help us along on the path of complete healing. #ArchangelSaints 


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.

God does not love you because you behave well. He loves you, plain and simple. His love is unconditional; it does not depend on you.

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.

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

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!
