"There is a criterion to know if God is near or far from us: anyone who cares about the hungry, the naked, the poor, the disappeared, the tortured, the imprisoned, about all this suffering flesh, is near God".

It was with Mons. Óscar Arnulfo Romero’s words that the homily was opened by Father Jesús Delgado, who was his secretary and, in recent years, has tirelessly kept the memory of the martyr bishop, supported, as he himself wanted to remember, by the Community of Sant'Egidio and mons. Vincenzo Paglia, now president of the Pontifical Council for the Family, postulator of the cause of beatification.

A joyful prayer, in which he participated, as well as a numerous people, even a hundred bishops from all over the world, friends of Sant'Egidio, gathered in these days in Rome for the conference "A prophetic people for a new humanism".
