He said that "beyond knowing Christ and learning about God's commandments and the teachings of the Church," we must establish "a right personal relationship with God and with one another."
"Justice and charity are the other important components of our mission of evangelization. Love for our neighbors and little ones reveals our love for God. Justice sets the right relationship among people that allows us to see in others, in the poor, the unemployed, the addicts, the sick, the least in our society, the undocumented and the refugees, the very face of Christ."
Turning to ecumenism and interreligious dialogue, Bishop Solis encouraged a fostesring of "dialogue and encounter," saying that "Courage and fidelity to our mission come along with mutual respect, understanding and harmony among diverse people and leaders of different faith denominations. Commitment to ecumenism, dialogue and unity is our big contribution to the world and humanity."
The bishop identified the hatred within the world occurring between differences in "race or cultural traditions, religion or politics, gender and color of skin." As an antidote, he proposed "dialogue tempered with charity that allows us to recognize" the dignity of life in refugees, unborn babies, the poor, and the suffering.
Bishop Oscar Solis emphasized that the Church's very purpose is "to proclaim the Gospel by the way we believe, love and serve one another,"
"Therefore, we must not make the mistake of trying to hoard the fullness of God's goodness within the walls of our Church. But be missionaries of mercy with compassionate hearts and the ability to heal wounds, to warm the hearts of others and be a brother or sister to one another."
