“Today, in the tragedy of a pandemic, in the face of the many false securities that have now crumbled, in the face of so many hopes betrayed, in the sense of abandonment that weighs upon our hearts,
Jesus says to each one of us:
‘Courage, open your heart to my love. You will feel the consolation of God who sustains you’ ”.
