Quote of the day: 13 November

Today more than ever before, the threats looming over us urge us to make love and brotherhood the fundamental law of social and international relations, in a spirit of reconciliation and forgiveness, taking inspiration from the way of life of which Blessed Mary of Jesus Crucified is an example not only for her people but for the whole world. May this new way of life give us peace based not on terror, but on mutual trust.

  1. Excellent points. I just saw our Parish’s Remembrance Sunday Requiem Mass. Very similar homily.
