“I invite you to allow yourself to be questioned by the words of Saint Paul: Do we walk according to the Spirit or do we remain locked in worldly desires? If we allow ourselves to be guided by the Spirit, we are also called to accompany those who suffer the most, to pray for them, to help them in a concrete way. I encourage you to continue on this path with patience and joy ”.
Francisco explained that despite the weaknesses that can be had, and that do not disappear, “We must avoid the opposite path, which he calls ‘disordered desires’. But that does not mean that the evil or our negative impulses will disappear, but that God is always stronger than our resistances and our sins “
