As Pope Francis visits the East African region in the next few days, let us be inspired in our work for children by his unifying messages about light and love. Speaking to Italian school children at risk of dropping out, Pope Francis told them about the importance of coming from the darkness into the light saying, “The light is always inside us. Because the light give us joy, gives us hope. When people seek light they can make the world a better place. We can’t make the world better with hatred – only with love. With love. With love. Altogether, like brothers, fighting alongside one another with love.”
