Camille's editorial of February 14, 2022: Let's celebrate love!

The title of the editorial on this Valentine's Day is far from original, yet although I joyfully wish all lovers a happy birthday, I want to talk about a much greater and more important: God's love for us.

I invite all of us to center our eyes on God today, let us give glory to the One who so loved the world that he gave his only son so that we may have eternal life. A proof of love as there are few!

Today's news also invites us to celebrate God's love for us and love for our neighbour. 

To start with the moving testimony of Roseline Hamel.

While the trial of the alleged accomplices of the executioners of his brother Jacques Hamel, assassinated in July 2016, begins this Monday, Roseline Hamel interviewed by InfoChrétienne evokes her suffering, her difficult mourning but also the grace of God in her life which allowed her to stand up and not be overwhelmed by hatred.

A testimony of love and resilience that commands admiration and that led him to make contact with the mother of one of his brother's assailants.

As fears of a Russian invasion of Ukraine grow, Ukrainian Christians deploy their arms: prayer and worship.

"People are worried but we encourage them to turn to Jesus with all our might because only through prayer can we keep peace in our country," said Kyzmenko Dmytro, pastor of New Generation Church. from Lviv.

Embla Ademi is an 11-year-old girl with Down syndrome. Discriminated against in her school in North Macedonia, she received significant support, since Stevo Pendarovski, President of the Republic of North Macedonia, accompanied her to school himself.

He thus wishes to “raise awareness that inclusion is a basic principle”.

This week we finally offer you to (re)discover a file in collaboration with the Christian women's magazine SpirituElles. A brief on hospitality which seemed appropriate to us on this date of Valentine's Day which can be a difficult time for lonely people.

The opportunity to reread what the Bible tells us about hospitality and to ask ourselves what we can do to show love to the people around us who face loneliness.
