"The deep certainty of our faith, that Jesus is with us in a particular manner when our life is most closely conformed to his cross, is the source of an extraordinary strength and confidence, so that those situations that would otherwise have been a source of endless desolation have now been lit up with joy."
The Suffering Church
"So let us, in God's name, restore love, and open our doors and hearts to him. For we humans belong together--all of us. And that includes the Germans and the communists. It includes the freezing and penniless wretches in their shelters. It includes the refugees and the uprooted."
“They have all this pressure from the powerful people living around them, especially the Muslims. They think that, as they are a minority people, they can do what they like with them. They even think they can kidnap their young girls or attack the people, the women or the men, it doesn't matter. So, they always have this kind of pressure. But, as a Church, we are beside them, to protect them; always we take care of them."
