The "force" that defeats the strong powers!
Liturgy of Sunday, April 14, 2019, Palm Sunday


Dear brothers and sisters next April 14, Palm Sunday, we celebrate also, at the diocesan level, the thirty-fourth youth day. In his message, Pope Francis, inter alia, has invited young people not to be afraid to "get out of themselves", like Mary, to defeat the "strong powers" of this world, putting themselves at the service of humanity . Following in this the example of God who, in Jesus, came “out of himself" so that each man had life and had it in abundance.

In fact, the strong powers of this world that makes of pride their boast, the accumulation of wealth their goal and evil, violence and lies their weapons to oppress humanity and destroy the planet, can only be defeated by Jesus, the Word of God, who became incarnate in the most pure bosom of Mary and became man to manifest and give to the world with all his life, but above all, in the "foolishness of the Cross", the Love of God, the only force capable of reversing the "stone" of injustice which, as Pope Francis reminds us, makes the earth and the poor weep, because it causes that explosion of life, joy and enthusiasm that is the Resurrection.
Dear brothers and sisters, I take this opportunity to wish you a blessed Holy Week and a happy Easter of Resurrection!
