Conclusion and plan for meetings in the coming months (Rafael Corso)

from the video of Papa Francisco on 15th October 2020   education bears within itself a seed of hope: the hope of peace and justice; the hope of beauty and goodness; the hope of social harmony. … In this way, we must move forward, all of us together, each as we are, but always looking ahead to the building of a civilization of harmony and unity, in which there will be no room for the terrible pandemic of the throw-away culture.
