Papal message for Communion and Liberation gathering

Catholic World News - August 25, 2014

Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s Secretary of State, has signed a papal message to those attending the Communion and Liberation movement’s 35th Meeting for Friendship among Peoples.

The theme of the meeting, which is taking place from August 24-30 in Rimini, Italy, is “to the ends of the earth and of existence: destiny has not left man alone.”

Cardinal Parolin said that the Pope wished to emphasize two points. First, in a culture that gives “top priority to appearance” and the “superficial and temporary,” participants should “never lose contact with reality” but rather “be lovers of reality.”

Second, because of profound ignorance of Jesus in “too many countries” of the West, participants should focus on essentials when they evangelize.
