To follow Jesus we must take three steps: draw close to Him to know Him better, confess - with the strength of the Holy Spirit - that He is the Son of God, and accept the path of humility and humiliation that He chose for the redemption of humanity. #HomilySantaMarta
The option for the poor and the abandoned motivates us to liberate them from material poverty and to defend their rights, but also to invite them to friendship with the Lord, who loves them and has given them immense dignity. #SocialJusticeDay
"Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth." The "earth" to conquer is the salvation of our brother and sister. There is no earth better than someone's heart, no land more beautiful to gain than peace renewed with a brother or sister. This is the earth to inherit.
"Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth" (Mt 5:5). Meekness can win over hearts, save friendships, and much more, because people get angry then they calm down. They rethink the issue before retracing their steps, and relationships can be rebuilt. #Beatitudes
Every one of us has something that has hardened within our heart. The medicine to combat hardheartedness is memory: recalling the blessings of the Lord. This keeps our heart open and faithful. #HomilySantaMarta
