Goodness disarms

We shall learn to choose goodness,

which is able to disarm and lead us to God.

Goodness is the only way we have to meet

our neighbour and communicate with them.

It is not claims

that make people meet,

but goodness,

which makes us seekers after justice

and supportive.

People of goodwill are never foreigners,

in any part of the world.

They are strangers to no-one and nothing.

Only people of goodwill can lead

to a good way, good solutions,

a good economy and politics,

a good leadership,

good boundaries and good rules.

They can be salt

and change the world

because they are able to ask for forgiveness to God

for the evil committed and to forgive in their turn,

because God Himself forgave them.

People of goodwill can make the impossible possible,

they desire that

peace and justice finally coexist,

united by forgiveness.

It is fundamental that people of goodwill

meet and recognise each other.

They are able to speak the truth and be generous,

to discover what unites us,

appreciate good within their neighbours

and recognise that contemporary disunity

derives from past mistakes, a lack of charity,

misunderstandings, interests and fear.

They are testifiers of Jesus Christ, Son of God,

Treasure of our Father.

 

«Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road. “When you enter a house, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ If someone who promotes peace is there, your peace will rest on them; if not, it will return to you. Stay there, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages. Do not move around from house to house. “When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is offered to you. Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say, ‘Even the dust of your town we wipe from our feet as a warning to you. Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God has come near.’ I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town.» (Luke 10, 3-12).
