People should not be afraid of God, as if he were "a master who wants to punish us". For the pope, “Jesus has always shown us that God is not a stern and intolerant master, but a father full of love, tenderness, and goodness. Therefore, we can and must have immense trust in Him.” The pontiff also urged “drivers to be prudent and respect the rules as the first form of protection of themselves and others.”
