NOTES FOR REFLECTION.
A spirituality of listening to welcome the other person and his word. Listen to the Spirit that inhabits it and that, from it, wants to come out to meet me. In an attitude of humility “from below”, “from close” and “from within”.
Dialogue is always co-creation, it generates something new, it takes the risk of “letting itself be affected” and it transforms us.
Of discernment, seeking together conscious of the presence that inhabits us, guides us and illuminates us with “enough clarity” to “take the next possible step”.
A spirituality of care: tenderness, custody and reparation, fruit of love, because what we love we take care of, with a particularly loving attention to the “wounded” that can be healing and repair broken relationships. A spirituality of patient resistance or resistant patience, capable of staying, of enduring dark times with the joy of hope, that bets on small steps that remain and patiently await the next step.
