At the Heart of our Lives, Dare to Believe in the Coming of Christ and Welcome Him

Advent is the period of preparation for the feast of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ (Christmas). From Latin adventus, it is a time of waiting. This year, the Church offers us as a theme for this preparation, “Dare to believe in it”. Indeed, we are called to the audacity to believe in the

Fear of Death

Death frightens me; it paralyzes me so much that I do not dare sometimes visit relatives or acquaintances who are preparing to experience it. I have heard that it is by death that we meet you face-to-face Lord. Is it perhaps because of this slogan that death scares me so much? I finally realize that

Why Continuing?

Because : It makes more sense. The original flame continues to burn more and more strongly. He is always the first, He has the initiative. My thirst for the world is more felt. The world needs him even more. I rely less and less on my own strength. He further increases my desire for Him.

Humanizing: A Current Challenge

Usually the verb “Humanizing” is used to define the action to make human something that is not. This is for example the case when one wishes to humanize working conditions. The etymology of this term then indicates that derives from “humanitas, atis, f., Humanus, human nature, all the qualities that make man superior to the

Amo Ergo Sum

Since I met you, I no longer imagine my life without You. Yet I sometimes get away from You, to forget you for a few moments. When this happens to me, I become more aware of the solid bond that unites us. With You I share my existence, not because I am sickly dependent, but

Advent is the period of preparation for the feast of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ (Christmas). From Latin adventus, it is a time of waiting. This year, the Church offers us as a theme for this preparation, “Dare to believe in it”. Indeed, we are called to the audacity to believe in the coming of Christ. Moreover, we are called to believe that the coming of Our Lord is not an idea or simply reduced to an annual celebration regarding all the publicity around Christmas.

This time of Advent is given to us as a period of questioning of what we believe in. In fact, do we believe that the coming of Christ really takes place in our daily lives, at the heart of the social disorders, economic, political, etc., that we know at this time? How to detect the warning signs of the coming of Our Lord in such a context of tribulation? Obviously, only Christian Hope can allow us to perceive the warning signs of this coming. Read more

Fear of Death

Death frightens me; it paralyzes me so much that I do not dare sometimes visit relatives or acquaintances who are preparing to experience it. I have heard that it is by death that we meet you face-to-face Lord. Is it perhaps because of this slogan that death scares me so much?

I finally realize that I have so far rationalized the issue of death, that I have taken refuge behind beautiful formulas to escape and avoid this undeniable reality.

But what makes me so afraid of death? Is it all the wounds of my life like abandonment, denial, the experience of rejection in many forms, etc.? Is it because of so much harm during my life? Is it because of so much evil of which I was the author? Is it for fear of being forgotten from my relatives and people I have known? Or, is it for fear of my vision of the afterlife, for fear of being in solitude and wandering forever? Read more

Why Continuing?

Daniel Abel Photograph

Because :

It makes more sense.

The original flame continues to burn more and more strongly.

He is always the first, He has the initiative.

My thirst for the world is more felt.

The world needs him even more.

I rely less and less on my own strength.

He further increases my desire for Him.

I still do not understand his ways, but he alone knows the way for me.

This is always worth it.

He is my source of life, joy and peace, as well as for the world.

You have to taste Him. Read more

Usually the verb “Humanizing” is used to define the action to make human something that is not. This is for example the case when one wishes to humanize working conditions. The etymology of this term then indicates that derives from “humanitas, atis, f., Humanus, human nature, all the qualities that make man superior to the beast”[1]. But we lay everyday actions that are contrary to human dignity; we advance remarks can hurt or even kill each other. So does it not legitimate to believe that humanizing is a current challenge?

Since I met you, I no longer imagine my life without You. Yet I sometimes get away from You, to forget you for a few moments. When this happens to me, I become more aware of the solid bond that unites us.

With You I share my existence, not because I am sickly dependent, but because of the reciprocal Love that dwells in us. My breathing is nothing more than our Love. How can I stop loving you? Indeed, it would assume that I no longer live to the extent that the absence of breathing is synonymous with the absence of life, that is to say, death with regard to our human conception.

The Love that binds us keeps me alive. But how can I explain the fact that I often forget you during a day in the tumult of my occupations? I am only aware of it when we converse so before I fall asleep, so when I make personal reading of my day. Obviously, forgetting at certain moments of my day reflects my imperfection, the mystery of what “I love you” although I am not entirely present to You. Read more
