“The people realise what we are doing and the question that the Muslim mothers ask us is “why do you do it?”. So then we speak to them about the Baby born in a stable in Bethlehem who, when he grew up, chose the cross to communicate his infinite love for every human being, especially for the weakest, the smallest and the alienated. They understand, yes they understand! They thank us and they show their gratitude in may ways, in their way of being moved, that we feel we do not deserve, because, in the end, we don’t do all that!”.
