Cardinal Fernando Filoni, of the Italian diocese of Concordia-Pordenone, testifies that among the suffering, there is still faith. While celebrating Mass on August 3, Cardinal Filoni noted that despite the sadness, Christians are filled with faith, rather than hatred.
Cardinal Filoni encountered numerous survivors from the Easter church attacks in Sri Lanka. They showed him pictures of loved and lost ones, and despite the sadness they felt, there was no hatred towards the attackers.
During Mass, the cardinal noted that the path of the Church is filled with”martyrs and persecutions”; However, just as Christ died forgiving those who hated him, Christians who suffer also forgive.
