Pope Francis sent a video message to the participants of this year’s Raíces y Alas conference in Washington, D.C., the 6th national Catholic Congress on Hispanic Ministry in the United States.
I invite you to reflect on the need to be Christian that transform structures and that can build bridges across all sectors of society.
he Pope observed that in this time of war and pandemic, humanity needs to change its mentality away from “schemes of war,” to focus on projects of peace.
I need peace, you need peace, the world needs peace, breathing peace is healthy. We need tangible signs of peace. Christians must set the example.
The congress brings together leaders working in Hispanic ministry in the United States. Among the participants are Doctors Emilce Cuda and Rodrigo Guerra, secretaries of the Ponntifical Commission for Latin America.
