Even in ordinary human relationships, faith, trusting other people is becoming quite difficult.”

He says the mission of the New Evangelization and the Year of Faith are quite similar. He adds that when people have faith in God, it's easier for them to have faith in others. Overtime, this makes societies healthier and stronger.
