If we act as one people, even in the face of other epidemics that threaten us, we can make a real impact. May we find within us the necessary antibodies of justice, charity and solidarity. We must not be afraid to live the alternative — the civilization of love. In this time of tribulation and mourning, I hope that, where you are, you will be able to experience Jesus, who comes to meet you, greets you and says: “Rejoice” (cf. Mt 28:9). And may this greeting mobilize us to invoke and amplify the Good News of the Kingdom of God.
