Thousands of Catholics greet Mgr Girelli in Tan An
The non-resident nuncio is currently visiting the Mekong Delta region. Greater efforts are needed to achieve a more balanced economic development. For this, people must place their trust in God, be compassionate and love one another in order to build a better and more peaceful world.

Hanoi (AsiaNews/Agencies) - Archbishop Leopoldo Girelli, the non-resident representative of the Holy See to Vietnam, met and talked with more than 3,000 priests and parishioners during his visit to Tan An, a city in the Mekong Delta region.

Government media quoted the prelate as saying that he was very happy to visit Long An province (pictured), home to 36,000 Catholics, and one of the country's most industrialised areas.

In order to ensure a more balanced economic development, the local community must place its trust in God, be compassionate and love one another so as to build a better and more peaceful world.

On this trip, the prelate also visited My Tho Diocese in Tien Giang province (southern Vietnam).

His plans also include other dioceses as well, starting with Dong Thap.

Pope: In “extremely difficult social and marital context”, Church called to carry out mission in fidelity, truth and charity.The opening Mass of the Synod on "The vocation and mission of the family in the Church and in the contemporary world," Pope Francis speaks of the paradoxes of global society: "power" accompanied by loneliness and helplessness." Today's man "ridicules" the family and love, but thirsts for it. The Church bears witness to indissoluble love, but must not forget to care and sustain "the man who falls or who errs." "A Church with closed doors betrays itself and its mission, and instead of being a bridge it becomes a barrier."

Pope in the US: “We Christians, the Lord’s disciples, ask the families of the world to help us”In the last Mass of the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia, Francis Pope highlights the daily "little gestures" that define the family, which is “the right place for faith to become life, and life to become faith". Gratitude, respect, and collaboration with families in which the Spirit operates can be found in every “family, people, region, or religion”.
