Third reflection

There is a lot of fighting and hatred in the world, but Pope Francis tells us that we can live together in peace if we dream and work together to live in a world as brothers and sisters.

Being brothers and sisters means not allowing differences between us – which can be many and of all sorts – to stop us from loving one another as brothers and sisters.

Pope Francis urges us to care for and welcome in our societies and cultures those of us who are most marginalized, including immigrants, the sick, the unemployed and prisoners. Above all, we are all brothers and sisters because we are all children of God.

Pope Francis reminds us that to truly live in a world where we love one another as brothers and sisters, it is important to listen to the stories and wisdom of our grandparents who have lived in a world very different from ours. Therefore, we learn to continue to work as they did and not to repeat their mistakes.
