In today’s beautiful, and at the same time somewhat lost world, many of us are looking for true Love and the meaning of our lives in what the world around us offers. On the other hand, we often forget about what is most valuable and what is hidden in the depths of every human heart.

That is why it is worth getting to know the Word of God and the rich and extremely inspiring teaching of the Church, which always comes to our aid in searching for answers to fundamental questions:

– who I really am and what is the purpose of my life?

– in what, or rather in whom, can I really hope?

– with what kind of love does God love me and what really is His Mercy?

Below are some of the most inspiring excerpts from Pope Francis’ latest teaching. This time from the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation from March 25, 2019 “Christus vivit” (115-116).

For him, you have worth; you are not insignificant. You are important to him, for you are the work of his hands. That is why he is concerned about you and looks to you with affection. “Trust the memory of God: his memory is not a ‘hard disk’ that ‘saves’ and ‘archives’ all our data. His memory is a heart filled with tender compassion, one that finds joy in ‘deleting’ from us every trace of evil”. He does not keep track of your failings and he always helps you learn something even from your mistakes. Because he loves you. Try to keep still for a moment and let yourself feel his love. Try to silence all the noise within, and rest for a second in his loving embrace.

His is “a love that does not overwhelm or oppress, cast aside or reduce to silence, humiliate or domineer. It is the love of the Lord, a daily, discreet, and respectful love; a love that is free and freeing, a love that heals and raises up. The love of the Lord has to do more with raising up than knocking down, with reconciling than forbidding, with offering new changes than condemning, with the future than the past”.
