The Archbishop's Messages regarding our synod

Homily at Our Lady of the Assumption Parish, August 15, 2019

"In the Gospel today, Jesus outlines very clearly what he intends to do and how he will suffer in carrying it out. In fact, he says that he came to light a fire on earth: “How I wish it were already kindled”. We know that such words have a long Biblical resonance referring to purification and holiness – in other words, conversion to God and the courage to change."
