Francis, the Uncommon Friend

     We are entering  the celebration of the “Transitus of Francis”, precisely at the eve of his Feast in the Universal Church.

      Back from more than 12 centuries the musical echo of his poems come to us, those poems he not only wrote but also acted, not only sang but transformed in pragmatic love, in life devoid of self and shared to infinity.

      Where does this freshness of an engaging Presence comes from, that  inspires the readiness to accep an unexpected dream?

     Where does this wind of joy blows from, that pushes us to replace, almost suddenly, the friendly shelter, for an enchanted and uncertain journey led by the nostalgy of a different future?

     Francis, the uncommon friend, from the distance of centuries, belongs to all the times, keeps charming them in his tenderness, keeps engaging them in his poverty, keeps impregnating them with the astonishing announcement, as the “Herald of the Great King”.

The Earth Is Yours – “A Loving and Humble Respect”

“…This sublime communion inspires us a sacred respect, loving and humble…”

     This quotation from “Laudato Si”  resonates vividly with the sensibility of young generations; in fact, they are prepared to bring upon the flourishement  of the infinite possibilities  that aim to rise all human life to its “highest exponent of meaning”.

       Our human adventure finds its own open road whenever it accepts the guidance of the purpose of this “sublime communion”  among everything existent; in this communion, we are taken care of as in a royal cribd; in this communion, each one of us receives the mission to take everything existent the more forward they will be able to.

     Everything and everybody belong to us, since the origin until the end of time; in the same way that we own ourselves to that living and mysterious Wholeness that counts on us, that pushes us forward, that secretly defies us and entrusts each one of us with the care for all the others. 

       Such is our free Earth, our open Home.

Progress, Not Perfection

     

Progresso, não a perfeição

    A spontaneous impulse lives in us towards “the most perfect”; it always lurks our newborn goals, it prowls the corners of our decisions, it even infiltrates the atmosphere of our most ingenious dreams.

    We go against this impulse by simply searching to progress, by each small step of our own determinations. The irresistible cintilation of perfection ceases its hypnotic power just after the first shaky steps which  reveal we have chosen the adventure of progressing.

    As a nocturnal expedition, where the map is drawn as we move forward, the humble discovery of what is uncertain and unheard: thus is the the meander of writing, groping along the elusive and graceful mouvement of words, aspiring their live freedom…
