It seems to me that we need a renewed orientation in our spiritual, intellectual and apostolic lives, a renewed orientation that exists in Christ Jesus squarely and firmly. John Paul II told the youth at Toronto:
Our personal encounter with Christ bathes life in new light, sets us on the right path, and sends us out to be his witnesses. This new way of looking at the world and at people, which comes to us from him, leads us more deeply into the mystery of faith, which is not just a collection of theoretical assertions to be accepted and approved by the mind, but an experience to be had, a truth to be lived, the salt and light of all reality (cf. Veritatis Splendor, 88).
