Man never stops seeking: both when he is marked by the drama of violence, loneliness, and insignificance, and when he lives in serenity and joy, he continues to seek. The only answer which can satisfy him and appease this search of his comes from the encounter with the One who is at the source of his being and his action. The road is Christ. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, who reaches the person in his day-to-day existence. The discovery of this road normally comes about through the mediation of other human beings.
Christianity, even before being a sum of doctrines or a rule for salvation, is thus the "event" of an encounter.- John Paul II
Since everything is given by Christ and since Christ is the origin of everything that we can do to respond to the openings that present themselves to us, let us love Jesus Christ. Let us not love our woman, let us not love our children if not because of Christ.- Fr. Giussani
