Rimini, Italy, Aug 20, 2018 / 16:01 pm
Many have forgotten that authentic Christianity has a positive influence on history and brings about greater human fulfillment, Archbishop Christophe Pierre said Sunday at a cultural event organized by the lay movement Communion and Liberation.
"When faced with change, conflict, relativism, and bleak prospects for the future, people are beginning to despair under the burden of daily life and have forgotten how to be protagonists in history," the apostolic nuncio to the US said Aug. 19 at the Rimini Meeting.
"Meeting Christ and being changed by Him – the revolution of the heart – this is what turns the wheel of history! This is the true revolution!"
This year's Rimini Meeting, held Aug. 19-25, explores the theme "The forces that move history are the same that make man happy".
