Dear Pedro and dear all.
an affectionate and great Easter wish that trans-INFORMS us and makes us
believer or non-believer, because our God, if he exists, is a Father who
loves everyone
his children.
A hug.
Caro Pedro e cari tutti.
un affettuoso e grande augurio pasquale che ci tras-INFORMA e fa ri-NASCERE,
credenti o non credente, perché  il nostro Dio, se esiste, è un Padre che
ama tutti
i figli.
Un abbraccio.
