In the awareness that peace dies if separated from justice, we dream of a world where the Golden Rule, the heart of many civilizations and traditions, becomes the way to pursue personally and collectively. Let us embrace the goal of universal brotherhood, the key to the present and future of our peoples, the only one capable of disarming the throwaway culture and open up to better sharing of goods, interdependence, and dialogue, the main path to peace.
Truthfully, to us it seems very nice that in this era that there is still someone who prepares a crib in the family and tries to involve others around it, when Christmas is reduced to an exchange of more or less useless and expensive gifts, to bright angels hanging everywhere along the streets of our cities, to large Christmas trees with coloured balls.
…we often experience the impotence of words with our children, with our relatives , who absorbed by their interests , which are often consumerist, reject any spiritual discourses. We can’t get through to them when we refer to the values in which we believe and which have supported us from the first day of our marriage. They appear to be so helpless, so vulnerable and dissatisfied but we don’t know how to help them…
