It is true that not even Christ is seen, but He exists; He is risen, He is alive, He is close to us, more truly than the most enamored husband is close to his wife. Here is the crucial point: to think of Christ not as a person of the past, but as the risen and living Lord, with whom I can speak, whom I can even kiss if I so wish, certain that my kiss does not end on the paper or on the wood of a crucifix, but on a face and on the lips of living flesh (even though spiritualized), happy to receive my kiss.Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa
Don’t Wait Until Your Old To Become A Saint, Start NOW!
Don’t wait until you are old to start becoming a saint. Begin right now. Cheerfully and joyfully, by fulfilling the duties of your work and of your everyday life. - St. Josemaria Escriva Photo by Markus Spiske on Unsplash
