Human failings

• The Catholic Church has been experiencing great pain. People have left the church because of its breakdown in a variety of ways. Many have confused the failures of human beings with the ongoing messages of the love and mercy of Jesus Christ, and have let Him go out of their lives.

In the Eucharistic Congress we have an opportunity to come back to God and take an active part in the rebuilding of our church. A more humble leadership has promised to listen to the people of God. Let's pray that this listening process is about to be organised in every parish.
