WORDS OF POPE FRANCIS

Solidarity is our word!

To serve, accompany, also means to defend, it means to align oneself with those who are weaker. Empty convents do not serve the Church, they are for the flesh of Christ, who are the refugees. (continued)

Solidarity is our word! To serve, accompany, also means to defend, it means to align oneself with those who are weaker.

Empty convents do not serve the church to transform them into hotels and earn money. Empty convents are not yours, they are for the flesh of Christ, who are the refugees.
The Lord calls us to live, with more courage and generosity, the welcoming in communities, in homes, in empty convents.

We do so much, maybe we are called to do more, welcoming and sharing with decision what Providence has given us to serve. To overcome the temptation of spiritual worldliness to be close to ordinary people, and especially to the last people.
We need solidarity communities who live love in a concrete way!
