Let’s leave our joys, our sorrows, all our tears and smiles in the heart of the Mother. I have come here to pray with you, for you and for all those who are now defending heroically for their country. The young people of Lisbon are already waiting to receive those who come with open arms. And those who cannot come or who are already in heaven, I will take them to Lisbon in my heart. “He concluded his speech in Ukrainian: “Glory to Ukraine!

At the end of the meeting, our young people had the opportunity to take a picture with D. Américo, with the promise of meeting again in Lisbon. There was still time for a conversation with the journalists of Radio Renascença.
