"He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village..and healed him”
“ We cannot be satisfied by changing the staff, however we have to achieve that the members of the Pontifical Commission  we”ll be renewed spiritually, humanly and professionally. The reform does not happen under any circumstances by changing the people-obviously changing of the staff will happen and in the future as well - but by the conversion of the individuals. The continuos education is not enough, but the continuous conversion and cleansing is also important and most importantly this is what is needed. Without a change in the mentality to function on a sustainable level would be an exercise in futility”-emphasized in his speech Pope Francis.
Today everybody wants to change the government, the politicians , many in our child protection centers are wating for a new era from new people! Many are expecting for me to  send away , dismiss people but before any decision it is worthwhile reading Pope Francis’ words ! The Pontifical  Commission  in Rome also needs reforms , but Pope francis is not expecting a better world by changing the people, but from the conversion of people ! Our Lord Jesus Christ is not changing His apostles but with wise speech, reasoning, teaching does everything so that they convert , to free them from under the yoke of avarice, laziness and sin ! This is our duty as well ! Not to condemn each other but lovingly, if needed even by washing our companions ‘ feet to help them to the freedom , sanctity of God’s children !
Man is not a diminishing entity !Not by trampling over, stepping across each other but by trying the “repair” by mercy and love , lovingly sanctifying is our duty to build a better world , worthy of mankind ! Our Lord Jesus Christ died for the people not for a distant utopia! He wants us here , today to be happy and by helping one another to become saints ! 
With love ,

Jesus Heals a Blind Man at Bethsaida
They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, “Do you see anything?”
He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.”
Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.  Jesus sent him home, saying, “Don’t even go into[a] the village.”
Mark 8, 22-26
