„Proselytism is solemn nonsense, it makes no sense.“

—  Papa Francesco 266th Pope of the Catholic Church 1936

We need to get to know each other, listen to each other and improve our knowledge of the world around us.

The world is crisscrossed by roads that come closer together and move apart, but the important thing is that they lead towards the Good.
