Jesus Christ, fountain of Hope
The Father gave Jesus the charge to transform the world, and to lead a liberated and divinized humanity back to the Father’s house in a great return movement. This is not an undertaking of a century or even of a thousand years.
Jesus Christ is of yesterday, today and tomorrow and of always. It is necessary that the people of Jesus Christ, his collaborators in the building up of the Kingdom, place themselves “in the era” of Jesus, without losing sight of what faith is.
They must not be impatient looking for immediate results. It is necessary to know how to discern what the Gospel is and what it is not. Above all, it is necessary to have deeply sunk roots in intimacy with Our Lord, like the prophets.
Raise your eyes and look beyond all of this where you can see the fountain of hope: Jesus Christ, risen up from the dead, victor over egoism and sin. He is our only hope.”
In order not to succumb to discouragement, at the times that you can’t see the results, lean on the Immortal and Everlasting One. We are invincible because the Lord conquered all our enemies. Death also was defeated by the Immortal One.
