Brothers who stretch out their hands
I go to prepare you a place for you.
Beings who burn with love.
Not only transgression.
Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised, his greatness is unsearchable. (Ps 144.3)
If you believe in even when the sun is hidden by clouds and I believe in love even when I feel it, then I believe in God even when silent.
With your gift of God you have changed the sea of dark passions that dragged us and we've saved from our sins that we were overwhelmed. The Eucharist makes our soul in a constant work of transfiguration because it prepares us gradually to eternal life.
