Works

Religion

The longing for holiness is not about wanting to be 'holier than thou'. It is about wanting the love of God to permeate all of our life, and for that love to be shown through our lives to other people.

Politics

Some people think that involvement in political life is something Christians should avoid. But God is present everywhere, including political institutions.

Church should organize delegations to different ecumenical conferences throughout the world and actively participate in the global inter-religious dialogues.
