We have indeed entered the painful time of the pandemic, which has brought so much suffering to a world already torn by divisions, war and extremism.

For this reason, the message of Abu Dhabi resounds even more strongly. That of a single destiny, common to all men and women. Only together will we be able to save ourselves and face the challenges of this new time.

That pact between religions, experts in humanity, anticipated the times and today we feel comforted by its spiritual strength
The man and woman of prayer know that the world is not given up to evil, because God has not abandoned it. It is the dream that the scriptures tells us about: “Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams”. The prophecy of a single human family, finally reconciled.
