Fr. Mario Pacifici recognizes and admires “the great missionary work in the health area” by Comfort Community Hospital of Andiamo in Balaka where over 70,000 patients have so far been treated this year with 75% of this being children.
In his advent message, which he calls “Towards Christmas”, Mario says he admires with gratitude those “who have believed and have supported the project” and he invites people and organisation, knowing the limitations “to continue with confidence and enthusiasm to give comfort to many”.
In the same message, he briefs his readers on the preparation of the Alleluya band for the 2016 International Tour with the theme “Odala/Blessed” which together with the Alleluya band they will bring to Krakow for World Youth Day.
Fr. Mario says Christmas is for everyone: young and old; rich and poor; black and white but only if we live the birth of Jesus, in an authentic life, with the heart of mercy, ready to reciprocal acceptance, “taking us by hand, walking together to grow together”.
