THE SAME VECTOR.
We can look in two directions: towards God and towards people. They are complementary looks, the same vector. Experiencing God makes us understand ourselves and live better as a person and be a better neighbor to others. And the deep encounter with others will lead us to God.
We can also look at our fragility and our strengths. A comprehensive look that makes us experience that our weakness can be a source of healing and forgiveness. And that our strength will only be such if it is put at the service of human wounds. Thus, we verify that we are all the same, but that no one is better than anyone.
And if we wonder where we are going, we can look sideways and ahead. Together and towards the future. As sisters and brothers towards the dream that God has promised us. Betting that everyone is happy.
In all this, praying every day: Saint Nazaria Ignacia, teach me to live like you.
