Pope praises indigenous peoples’ sense of family, community
August 10, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis tweeted on August 9, “How precious is that profoundly genuine sense of family and community among #IndigenousPeoples! And how important it is to cultivate properly the bond between young and old, and to maintain a healthy and harmonious relationship with all of creation!”
The previous day, in an apparent reference to dialogue with Canada’s indigenous peoples, he had tweeted, “Reviving a dialogue happens not with words, but witth silence; not by insisting, but by patiently beginning anew to patiently listen to another person, hearing about their struggles and what they carry inside. The healing of the heart begins with listening.”
