Be Bridges


An excerpt from an article in ZENIT on Monday, where a new cardinal in Chile shares his thoughts on the current call in the Church:

Let Us Be Bridges Between Jesus and the People, Says Chile's Cardinal Ezzati

[Chile] is a country, as are all the countries of Latin America, that is experiencing a very profound, epochal change, a cultural change which calls, therefore, for an intelligent, generous and sometimes very sacrificial evangelization. Because, as in Jesus’ time, the proclamation of the Gospel isn’t easy. However, one who receives it, receives also the new life, the generosity of the new life. What is important is that we pastors be pontiffs in the sense of being bridges, so that Jesus will encounter all the people and people can encounter Jesus.
