"I summon you to a friendly and pressing call to prayer, which does not give up, to courageous faith, and to communion among brothers which is stronger than any war and any threat... I would like to wake up and wake you up, if you allow me, dear brothers and sisters, not to the terror of the war that paralyses, but to the humble courage of those who unite like the first Christians to pray with certain conviction that Jesus on the cross is the victor of history.

 

- Fr. Miguel Márquez, OCD

Superior General of the Discalced Carmelites
