Cardinal reminds Peruvians that Mass is center of the week

.- The Archbishop of Lima, Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani, reminded Peruvians this week that Sunday Mass is the center of each week and encouraged families to attend.

“The Mass is the center of the week, of the Peruvian family, and around which all of our desires and hopes revolve.  Perhaps many have lost this sense, and few appreciate it as the great and only remedy for all of our wrongs, as the way to seek out again the love of God so that humanity can leave behind the darkness in which it finds itself,” the cardinal said.

He also called on Peruvians to reject selfishness, reminding them that “the problem of today’s world is that we are deaf and we don’t want to listen to Jesus.”

Cardinal Cipriani also referenced the upcoming October celebrations of Our Lord of the Miracles, calling them “the best time for conversion, for removing the chaos from our hearts that leads to envy, anger and laziness, so that the Lord might help us to be converted and discover the beauty of a life lived for love.”
