Let us preserve freedom. Let us cherish freedom. Freedom of conscience, religious freedom, the freedom of each person, each family, each people.

May God continue to shed his grace on you and your family

May God the Father, who has called us to be one human family, fill our hearts with a deep longing for peace and harmony.

May the Son of God, who came to share our life and make us children of the one Father, enable us to grow in wisdom and grace before God and the human family.

and may the Holy Spirit, who is the bond of love between the Father and the Son, unite in love all nations and all members of the human family.
