What must I do to inherit eternal life ?
The mystery of God is open to a person that can see and hear. The source of the inner spiritual senses of every human being is the heart. It is a place of dialogue and encounter; it is an ability to see and listen. It is "our hidden center, the place of truth and decision in which we choose life or death, it is a place of covenant with God" (see: Catechism of the Catholic Church 2562).
… According to your word.
On the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord together with the whole Church, we look to Mary, who faithfully kept all matters in her heart (see Luke2, 51). Mary, while preserving and contemplating the things of God, invites us to be the house of the Word of God that we may protect and preserve it as rich soil that brings fruit - the fulfilled promise of a new life.

Dear Sisters and Brothers of the spirit of St. Vincent Pallotti,
May grace and thanksgiving accompany us as we celebrate today the feast of St. Vincent Pallotti. Being united with all of you on this Founder's day, we present to God each of you and all that you hold in your heart: your joys, concerns and sorrows. May the example of St. Vincent Pallotti's life, his undivided love for Christ and the Blessed Mother, as well as his inexhaustible zeal for every person who was in need, be our inspiration and our strength for our daily life and our mission in the Church.

Once again, we meet on the edge of time: the old year goes away and a new one comes. Not everything in our lives happens at once, at the same time, immediately. We need a rhythm of events. Every year gives us this rhythm, which makes order in our life, purifies us and allows us to touch real life.
