In this very serious and painful moment, we share this ‘hour of suffering’ with the Pope, with the whole Church and with all those who have been wounded by this serious wound of abuse.
In a special way, in my own name and in the name of the entire Focolare Movement, I have conveyed our support and prayers to the Holy Father in this moment in which we see personal attacks on him growing day by day. They look like a senseless reaction to the clear and strong line that has been a characteristic of his pontificate.
In the faith that the love of the Father guides history, we are sure that this moment is preparing a new resurrection, because it ‘forces’ us and the whole Church to live the Gospel in a new, more radical way.
Maria Voce – President of the Focolare Movement
