Lifestyles by Estelia…… I was struck by Pope Francis’ New Year’s Day address and would like to take this time to share some of it with you. He urged everyone to work for a world where everyone accepts each other’s differences and where enemies recognize that they are brothers. “We are all children of one heavenly father. We belong to the same human family and we share a common destiny,” he said. He begged the questions: “What is happening in the heart of man? What is happening in the heart of humanity?” His words made me reflect on my own actions. They reinforced the commitment I made to myself … to give a gift and expect nothing in return and to find happiness within myself and in the simple things of life. For me, Pope Francis, by his actions and words, demonstrates that he is determined to eliminate the plague of prejudice in our society and to renew our civic purpose as a people. Thank you, Pope Francis.
