With this Letter, I wish to encourage the beautiful family tradition of preparing the nativity scene in the days before Christmas, but also the custom of setting it up in the workplace, in schools, hospitals, prisons and town squares. - Admirabile signum - 01.12.2019
A family enlightened by the Gospel provides a school for Christian living!
There one learns faithfulness, patience and sacrifice.

@Pontifex (10.05.2014)
24.11.2019 - In a world where millions of children and families live in inhumane conditions, the money that is squandered and the fortunes made through the manufacture, maintenance and sale of ever more destructive weapons, are an affront crying out to heaven.
