“In the darkness of violence, the Church is light that transforms hearts”

The Cardinal of Rio de Janeiro, Msgr. Orani João Tempesta stressed the importance of mercy in the face of revenge and the situation of violence that occurs in many parts of the world.

He also says that “We are the bearers of that light of Christ to say that a different society is possible: those who listen will have a transformed heart, those who do not listen, at least in their lives, they have that opportunity to live something different.”

“It is a whole situation where it seems that the course is lost and that the horizon of the world seems to be darkened. It is up to us, the Church, to be those who bring the light of Christ to our brothers, to be that light in the middle of the world,” said the Cardinal of Rio de Janeiro,  Msgr. Orani.
