Each week we let Saint Pope John Paul II share meaningful signposts to spark socio-economic resolves through justice and righteousness combined with mercy and compassion; in short, love.

               25 and He did not need anyone to testify concerning man [and human nature], for He Himself knew what was in man [in their hearts—in the very core of their being]. 

               __ John 2: 25 (Amplified Bible) 

Luanda (Angola) – 7 June 1992 | Young people of Angola: dedicate your life to worthy and just causes! 

Build a homeland that rests on authentic human and Christian values so that the world of tomorrow does not accuse you of having left it a land devoid of ideals and alienated by pseudo-values. 

Build something that has value! 

               Love and help each other, particularly the poor and marginalized. 

               Do not accept social divisions in your code of relations: they are a sad legacy of the past. 

               Let the differences be attributes that enrich and give multiformity to the Angolan people, not a reason for division and discord. 

Be a united people, build a single nation in which everyone can consider themselves brothers.
