“Life is a journey. It is a path, a journey to meet Jesus. At the end, and forever. It is for the Christian to continually encounter Jesus, to watch him, to let himself be watched over by Jesus, because Jesus watches us with love; he loves us so much, he loves us so much and he is always watching over us. To encounter Jesus also means allowing oneself to be gazed upon by him”. These are the words pronounced by Pope Francis on December 1, 2013, during the homily of the Holy Mass celebrated on the occasion of the pastoral visit to the Roman parish of San Cirillo Alessandrino.
“This is the Christian life: to walk, to go forward, united as brothers, loving one another. Encounter Jesus. Take courage, do not be afraid! Life is this journey. And the most beautiful gift is to meet Jesus”.
