Thank you very much for the invitation to join your conference under the inspiration of Canon Cardijn and the whole YCW movement. I very much regret that I am not able to stay for your whole conference and join in your conversation.

I believe he would be in no doubt that your conference comes at a very critical time for the Church and for our country, and he would be surprised at the new challenges that face us.
