English Transcript: 

There's no question of God's intention. The issue is whether we'll consent. That's all we have to 
do, ultimately, accept his love and I think if we put other projects in front of that or even beside 
it, we're missing some of the great realities of life and also its immense possibility for 
transformation. Every human is called to make a contribution towards the transformation of 
people, individuals, which alone can enable societies to be transformed.

Consentimiento y aceptación – eso es todo

No hay duda de las intenciones de Dios. La cuestión es si damos nuestro consentimiento. Eso 
es todo lo que tenemos que hacer, aceptar su amor, y creo que si anteponemos otros proyectos a 
ello, o aun si los consideramos a la vez, nos estamos perdiendo algunas de las grandes realidades
de la vida, y también la inmensa posibilidad de transformación. Cada ser humano es llamado a 
hacer algún tipo de contribución para la transformación de las personas, de los individuos, que a
su vez es lo único que permite que las sociedades se transformen.
