One cannot separate Christ and the Church. The grace of Baptism gives us the joy of following Christ in and with the Church.
We are all jars of clay, fragile and poor, yet we carry within us an immense treasure.
With his coming among us, Jesus came close to us and encountered us; also today, through the Sacraments, he encounters us.
The light of faith illumines all our relationships and helps us to live them in union with the love of Christ, to live them like Christ.
The security of faith does not make us motionless or close us off, but sends us forth to bear witness and to dialogue with all people.
