On November 30, in his address to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28) in Dubai, Pope Francis urged various heads of state and all people of good will with these words:
“I who bear the name Francis, with the heartfelt urgency of a prayer, want to leave you with this message: Let us leave behind our divisions and unite our forces! And with God’s help, let us emerge from the dark night of wars and environmental devastation in order to turn our common future into the dawn of a new and radiant day. Thank you. »
What a program! It’s more than rushing to the malls looking and buying for gifts and artificial goods! It’s a radical conversion, starting from small resolutions. Let us meet the poor and handicapped children. Let us listen to their dreams. Maybe they are God’s dreams! Thank you!
