Pope Francis spoke recently in Canada. "This parish . . . is a place for all . . . it is the family of the children of God, where hospitality and welcome are essential. A home where everyone should feel welcome, regardless of past experiences and personal life stories. I want to thank you for the concrete closeness you show to many poor people – it is very moving – for they are numerous, even in this rich country – through your works of charity. . . Thanks be to God, for in parishes like this, day by day, through encounter, foundations are being laid for healing and reconciliation."  Edmonton 25th July 2022
