All it takes to encounter God is to acknowledge that we are needy. And the key to that encounter lies in humbling ourselves.
Today we recall the words of Don Tonino Bello: "Works of charity are not enough, unless those works are done with charity".
Mercy opens the doors of the heart because it makes us feel like we are all children of one Father.
The Christian vocation means being a brother or sister to everyone, especially if they are poor, and even if they are an enemy.
God asks us little and gives us a lot. He asks us to open our hearts and to welcome Him and the most vulnerable of our brothers and sisters.
