«Dearest all, Today I send you a greeting from Australia.
Our Holy Journey continues, and we cannot pause, much less start going backwards. Jesus said: “Whoever puts his hand to the plough but keeps looking back is unfit for the reign of God” (Lk. 9:62).
Here in Australia, the coat of arms of this young country reminds us of this, because it depicts two animals, chosen precisely because they can’t walk backwards: the kangaroo – the famous kangaroo! – and the emu, an Australian bird.
We, too, must keep going forward courageously».
