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

Mercy, Forgiveness, Forgetting

From Latin Misericordia, Mercy refers to compassion, pity. In this sense, be merciful returns to be taken compassion. Moreover, compassion comes from the Latin Compassio meaning “common suffering.” This then indicates that Mercy is the willingness to share the suffering of others, to be touched by the suffering of the other. Finally, Mercy is the

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.

Baptism request: fictive letter to the Church

I come through this request to your maternal benevolence to solicit baptism.

Several routes have been proposed to me, certain ideals of life have been presented to me, but I have not seen anything other than the path you indicate to those who wish to find an answer to their quest. It is a real encounter, a true relationship with Christ through his brothers and sisters who were born of water and fire, baptism and the Spirit, who came out of the womb of the Church. Read more
