In the midst of chaos, they were moved by the voices of life for the weak, poor, and voiceless, and were founded solely on their trust in a God of mercy. And I believe that this feeling has not changed, and should not change, either then or now. However, as the world becomes richer and richer, at the same time, I think we are beginning to hear and hate the cries of small hearts in our lives, a heart that relies on the things of the world instead of trusting in God. The world is in a state of anxiety because of coronavirus, weak lives are threatened, and the world is on the verge of another war because of the invasion of Ukraine. The Holy Spirit of God blows even in the midst of such a situation, especially when small lives are lost and people are running for their lives.
The world today is also suffering a lot, and small lives are being neglected. In this context, the Church will open a Synod next year. We are calling on many people to "walk with us. Walk hand in hand with all people". God gives us the present time and leads us to live in grace. He urges us to walk with the weak and the strong, the poor and the flying, those who know Christ and those who do not. Walking together requires trust in God and others. Let us return to the founding spirit and take a new step forward, remembering the trust in God and love for people that our founders experienced.
I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him.
Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love.
If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be.
