The church is like a great orchestra

By on February 24, 2020

The church is like a great orchestra in which there is a great variety. We are not all the same, and we do not all have two be the same. We are all different, varied, each of us with our own special qualities. And this is the beauty of…

Christians enclosed in their groups

By on February 24, 2020

Whenever we Christians are enclosed in our groups, our movements, our parishes, and the same thing happens to us that happens to anything close: when a room is closed, it begins to get dank. If a person is closed up in that room, he or she becomes ill! Whenever…

Mercy

Just as he is merciful, so we are called to be merciful to each other.

By on February 24, 2020

Mercy is a key word that indicates God’s action towards us.  He does not limit himself merely to affirming his love, but makes it visible and tangible.  Love, after all, can never be just an abstraction.  By its very nature, it indicates something concrete; intentions.

Living in charity

By on February 23, 2020

Sanctity does not consist especially in doing extraordinary things, and allowing God to act. It is the meeting of our weakness with the strength of his grace, it is having faith in his action that allows us to live in charity, to do everything with joy in humility, for…

Christians cannot be pessimists!

By on February 23, 2020

If we walk in hope, allowing ourselves to be surprised by the new wine that Jesus offers us, we have joy in our hearts, and we cannot fail to be witnesses of this joy. We have a mother who always intercedes for the life of her children. Jesus has…

The throwaway culture

By on February 23, 2020

“No amount of ‘peace-building’ will be able to last, nor will harmony and happiness be attained, in a society that ignores, pushes to the margins, or excludes a part of itself; it loses something essential. We must never, never allow the throwaway culture to enter our hearts! … No…
