We are all in the same boat, and our post-pandemic world will necessarily be different from what it was before the pandemic…Do not look so much at the things that the world praises. Look into the corners, look in the shadows, look at the peripheries, at what the world does not want. Consider important what others discard. Don’t judge others. Take a look at yourself. It is good to ask ourselves what drives us to correct a brother or a sister, and if we are not in some way co-responsible for their mistake. Let us not lose the memories preserved by the elderly, for we are children of that history, and without roots, we will wither. Our elders protected us as we grew, and now it is up to us to protect their lives, to alleviate their difficulties, to attend to their needs and to ensure that they are helped in daily life and not feel alone. Excerpt from America Magazine: New Year’s Resolutions Inspired by Pope Francis.
