Meds

In Conversation with God:

… we must bear witness to the faith… a witness which is personal, definite and, if such an event should occur, given at great cost and demanding exceptional courage…

Today there are hundreds and hundreds of thousands of witnesses to the faith…

… believers obliged to meet clandestinely because their religious community is not longer authorised… bishops, priests and religious who are forbidden to exercise the holy ministry in their churches, or at public meetings…

… generous youths, who are prevented from entering a seminary or a place of religious formation in order to follow their own vocation there… parents who are denied the possibility of ensuring that their children receive an education inspired by their own faith… 

… men and women, manual workers and intellectuals… people drawn from all the professions, who, by the simple fact of professing their faith run the risk of seeing themselves deprived of a brilliant future career in keeping and commensurate with their studies…

Today’s Christian needs the virtue of fortitude in a special way…

Charity is never weakness, and fortitude should never assume an aspect that is peevish, harsh or ill-humoured…

Any faith that lacked external manifestations would be false…

The Lord needs strong and courageous souls who refuse to come to terms with mediocrity, but who will be able to enter all kinds of environments with a sure step…

God’s honour is paramount above all human considerations. We cannot remain passive when people want to put God into parenthesis in public life or when sectarianism strives to relegate him to a corner of men’s consciences…

… as summer hangs on the horizon, desire jumps the fence and hightails to the sea, a subtle tale turns into nightmares, without the sentence structure nothing functions, no one has a clue if it’s me or if it’s you… as winter strangles at the shoreline division locks the door and confiscates the key… the time has passed for parting glances, there’s no romance, there’s no sign of the things that i used to be and all those things you promised me… we’re not alone, just lonely all of the time…
