In other to achieve this,

Let’s act justly – to love according to need, and not according to greed.

Let’s love mercy – to recognize in every person the image of God, and grant them the same dignity, the same respect, the same opportunities that we enjoy, in this life as well as in the life to come.

It is a challenge to all of us, to spread hope in this hurting world. As individuals, we can all help to put pressure on Local, National & Global leaders to play their part in securing a more just and merciful world.

May God help us
