Words from Fabio
Faith can be understood as the ability to welcome God into our life. Having faith, the believer senses the presence of God in his existence and perceives his permanent companion. That is why he endures silence, although he walks through dark ravines, he fears nothing because he knows that God is with him. That is why faith also marks the beginning of a friendship. God presents himself as a friend, establishes a personal, living and close relationship with those who believe and walk with him. He (God) is interested in one’s life and counts
on it. Faith, as vigilant hope of the passage and the coming of the Lord, is moved by the hope of good, whose guarantee is the promise of God. Leaning on faith, hope leaves for a new homeland; it gives us a movement of faith and charity. When we stop having hope, love and faith go into agony, so it becomes more difficult for us to believe and act.
Question: How strong is my faith, love and charity?
- Do not erase any day of your life. The beautiful days have given you happiness. The bad ones have given you experience, and the worst ones have taught you how to live.
- Faith is perfected by the works of love and charity.
