Dear brothers and sisters, we need to let ourselves be bathed in the light of the Holy Spirit so that he may lead us into the Truth of God, who is the one Lord of our life. In this Year of Mercy let us ask ourselves whether we really have taken some steps to know Christ and the truth of our faith by reading and meditating on Sacred Scripture...by receiving the sacraments regularly. However, let us ask ourselves at the same time what steps we are taking to ensure that faith governs the whole of our existence. We are not Christian "part time," only at certain moments, in certain circumstances, in certain decisions...we are Christian all the time! May Christ's truth, which the Holy Spirit teaches and gives to us, always and totally affect our daily life.
Merciful God, I need YOUR wisdom. Speak, O Lord, and help me listen.
