Let me begin with the message of Pope Francis for the season of Advent; “For the great human family, it is necessary to renew always the common horizon toward which we are journeying. The horizon of hope! This is a horizon that makes a good journey.”
“The time of Advent that we begin again returns us to the horizon of hope, a hope that does not disappoint because it is founded on the word of God. A hope that does not disappoint, simply because the Lord never disappoints! He is faithful”.
With the fraternal greetings, I come to you together with all my Capuchin brothers, to bring a little hope into your life here on earth and in the life to come. Let us together re-create hope for ourselves and for our children. Life can be lonely and aimless without having our gaze into the future. Let us not become the victims of changing the environment
around us. Winter is just beginning and in four months we will have springtime again….
