Communion & Liberation: August 2011 Archives

The Mystery, however has not launched us into the adventure of life without providing us with a compass with which to find our bearings. This compass is the heart. In our epoch, the heart has been reduced to a feeling, a question of mood, but we can all recognize in our experience that the heart does not allow itself to be reduced, it will not be conformed to anything. "Men and women were created for something great, for infinity. Nothing else will ever be enough." The Pope says in his Message, and we know it very well.

So whoever takes his heart seriously, made as it is for what is great, begins to have a criterion for judging the truth or the falsity of whatever proposal dawns on the horizon of his life. "You are constantly being offered easier choices, but you yourselves know that these are ultimately deceptive and cannot bring you serenity and joy."
