Rainbow Flames

"Dialogue with everyone is something that Jesus taught us. Furthermore, when one closes himself to dialogue, it is a sign of weakness, it reflects that he does not have enough faith to believe in the strength of the Gospel. The power of the Gospel is for everyone. It is a principle that moves me a lot and that is my philosophy. Jesus says: 'Go and bring everyone to me, healthy and sick, just and sinners.' To all. And here they all come. If the Church does not do what Jesus taught it, it is not the Church. Everyone has to feel inside, to be welcomed inside. We cannot give up on that, because the Lord taught us this."      Pope Francis at the World Youth Day in Lisbon August 2023
