“My fellow Timorese, move forward and love your lives. Life is beautiful and it is a blessing. So, each and every one of you should live your life to the fullest. You should fight to promote the value of your lives and seek in yourself to be the best you can, to be able to respect others, to serve justice, and also to fight against evils that may come to your lives”. This is the message of encouragement from Pope Francis to Timorese and reiterated by Bishop Virgilio do Carmo SDB in his sermon during the inauguration of the Chapel of Railaco Kraik on November 9th, 2018.
The inaugural ceremony that was presided by Bishop Virgilio do Carmo SDB and concelebrated by other Jesuit priests was a blessing for the communities in Railaco Kraik who had been waiting enthusiastically to celebrate that very day.
