Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

Year of the Faith in eyes of a Saint--

Do we really have faith?

Are we really in Love with the Church?

Let us fall in Love again and again with the Church through the eyes of this poor saint, 
who loved the Church with all of his being..

"Faith is a virtue which we Christians greatly need, and in special way in this 'Year of Faith' which our beloved Holy Father Pope Paul VI has decreed. For, without faith, we lack the very foundation for the sanctification of ordinary life.

A living faith in these moments, because we are drawing near to the mysterium fidei, to the Holy Eucharist: because we are about to participate in our Lord's Pasch, which sums up and effects the mercies of God towards men.

Faith, my children, in order to acknowledge that within a few moments the work of our Redemption is going to be renewed on this altar. Faith, to savour the Creed and to experience, around this altar and in this Assembly, the presence of Christ, who makes us cor unum et anima una, one heart and one soul and transforms us into a family, a Church which is one, holy, catholic, apostolic and Roman, which for us is the same as saying universal.

Faith, finally, my beloved daughters and sons, to show the world that all this is not just ceremonies and words, but a divine reality, as we present to mankind the testimony of an ordinary life made holy, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and of Holy Mary."
