142. The light leads to dawn

The fire of earth [Jesus in our heart] shines in heaven. It enlightens all those who take refuge in God, welcome him and accept to live with his light. To the young people gathered in Rome in 2000, Pope John Paul II said of Jesus:
“He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is he who provokes you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is he who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is he who reads in your hearts your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle. It is Jesus who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives.” World Youth Day, Prayer Vigil at Tor Vergata, August 19, 2000, number 5. Vatican Site:

Let’s put on the garment of light that leads us to the dawn of the new day. Let’s have the courage, the will, the desire to transform the world through Love, with God.
