English Nation needs restoration of faith and love, says Cardinal
Dec 26, 2005
Cardinal Peter Erdo focused on the nation's need to restore its faith and hope, while celebrating midnight mass at St. Stephen's Basilica in Budapest, to mark the Christmas holiday.

Budapest, December 25 2005 (MTI) - "We sorely need to replace selfishness, a lack of interest in the future, deep divisions in thinking, mistrust, and fear of what life has to offer with a restoration of faith and love, said the Cardinal, who is also Archbishop of Esztergom-Budapest, addressing a capacity audience. He announced that he was declaring the year starting on January 1 as a year of prayer for the restoration of the soul of the nation and called on the faithful to be more loving towards one another.

"The Christmas holiday is time to relearn how to help and to speak kindly to all people in our environment; the elderly, the lonely, the ill, and to people with whom we may not have spoken for some time," he said adding that the secret of Christmas was the way it addressed the most profound points of humaneness.
