In a video message to the 1st Philippine Conference on the New Evangelization, Pope Francis said: “Let the Holy Spirit renew creation and bring forth justice and peace in the Philippines and in the great continent of Asia that is close to my heart.”
The conference, being held at Santo Tomas University in Manila, closed on October 18. In his message the Pope encouraged the participants: “Don’t get tired of bringing the mercy of the Father to the poor, the sick, the abandoned, the young people and families. Let Jesus be known in the world of politics, business, arts, science, technology and social media.”
