In Conversation with God:

For the person who wants to travel along the way of sanctity, his life cannot be like a great avenue of missed opportunities, because God wants our words to echo his teachings in order to move hearts. It is certain that God respects human freedom, and that there may be people who ‘do not want’ to turn their eyes towards God’s light. But the grace that God wants to pour out on earth is far stronger, more abundant and more plentiful. He makes use, now as before and always, of the co-operation of the apostles whom He himself has chosen to carry his light everywhere…

No Christian should remain passive – in any way inhibited – in this task. It is the only really important task in the world. We must not make excuses… The Christian vocation is a vocation to do apostolate, and God gives us the grace to correspond.

Are we really a ray of light in the midst of so much darkness, or are we still held fast bound by laziness or human respect? … Let us hope they will not be able to reproach us, in this life or the next, for having deprived them… hominem non habeo, I have had no one to give me a little light in so much darkness. For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword…

We need… heralds of the Gospel who are experts in humanity, who know the depths of the heart of many to-day, who share in his hopes and joys, his worries and his sadness, and at the same time are contemplatives, in love with God…

CCC #357

Being in the image of God the human individual possesses the dignity of a person, who is not just something, but someone. He is capable of self-knowledge, of self-possession and of freely giving himself and entering into communion with other persons. and he is called by grace to a covenant with his Creator, to offer him a response of faith and love that no other creature can give in his stead.
