“In union with all creatures, we journey through this land seeking God, for «if the world has a beginning and if it has been created, we must enquire who gave it this beginning, and who was its Creator».[ 172] Let us sing as we go. May our struggles and our concern for this planet never take away the joy of our hope.
245. God, who calls us to generous commitment and to give him our all, offers us the light and the strength needed to continue on our way. In the heart of this world, the Lord of life, who loves us so much, is always present.”
