Following Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation, Verbum Domini, Bishop Vergara, a writer for ST PAULS Philippines, stressed in his homily that the Word of God ushers  Hope. As the Asian region is being beset by both moral and natural crises, like the flash floods that devastated the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan in the Philippines, people are not just in need of concrete material help. They also need the Word of God as source of strength and encouragement, they whose faces, in the words of Emmanuel Levinas, ordain us “not to kill but to love.“
