Clearly the Pope is back in Italy and back at work.
He identified as the new enemies of Christianity: abortion, euthanasia, the negation of sexual duality and of a family based on marriage.
This is interesting, since we must conclude from this that because ideas don’t float in a vacuum but are in reality help by people, the promoters of abortion, etc., are the enemies of Christians.
Bp. Betori compared nihilism and relativism to the troops of Frederick Barbarossa (!) who attacked Gubbio in 1155 and whom St. Ubaldo helped to drive away with the military.
Bertori defended the role of the Church in the public square, saying that the new enemy is trying to subvert public order.
Reading the Italian, it seems like Mons. Betori was making an extemporaneous speech. The Italian is a bit tortured, but here is a taste in my translation:
"If we want to defend the true face of man, we must rediscover the face of God. The face of God is love, not however a love which is weak and hides the truth, that which creates ambiguity under the veil of false tolerance, rather than one which is demanding, which does not avoid cutting to cure, which makes distinctions so as to build authentic bridges and looks not reduce everything to a false homogeneity, which reminds us of responsibility without indulging in a "go along to get along" attitude which fails in the end."
