The head of the Syracusan church referred to the many fears caused by the pandemic and invited everyone to create a spirit of fraternity
“We are living in a moment of crisis, uncertainty, loss, fear of getting sick and fear of vaccinating ourselves. We have to be realistic: that motto «Everything will be fine» depends on us and on how we commit ourselves ”.
This is the incipit of the Easter message of the Archbishop of Syracuse, Mons. Francesco Lomanto, to the Syracusans. A message strongly imbued with the concerns that man is experiencing due to the pandemic in progress, but which also carries with it a message of hope because “As a believing community – says the archbishop – we can make our contribution to society, eager to to be reborn, bearing witness that the only treasure that is not destined to perish and that must be communicated to future generations is love, the gift of ourselves. to contribute to generating a spirit of fraternity everywhere, taking care of those left on the sidelines, of those who live in suffering, of those who are confused and looking for answers ”.
Finally, the exhortation to be courageous “to find the possible and right solutions to problems, to think about the present and build the future, to identify new viable ways, to deploy new practices, which put man and the common good at the center”
