As followers of St. John of God all of us need to see things positively and try to give heart to people in situations in which there is opposition, resistance and fear. These often hamper and slow down the mission because the world needs to be humanized today more than ever before. So many people feel disenfranchised and humiliated for various reasons ranging from ill health to dire financial straits. So many others feel vulnerable and defenseless in a society which fails to take care of them and even tends to marginalize them. The Spirit of the Risen Christ is sending us out to these people precisely to bring them the hope of the Good News.
