A Humanity of Dialogue, of Communication, of Communion

From the Gospel of St. Mark:  Jesus heals a deaf man. "In this 'sign we see Jesus' ardent desire to overcome man's solitude and isolation, the result of his egotism, and to give rise to a 'new humanity', a humanity that listens, a humanity of the word, of dialogue, of communication, of communion. A 'good' humanity, ... with no discrimination or exclusion, ... that the world may become 'a place of true brotherhood' for everyone". Pope Benedict XVI, Sept. 6, 2009 http://www.vatican.va/
