God is waiting to love man and to work with him. And the success of man’s life depends on his finding God. Can God be found? He calls to man in the world; but the world itself is noisy, distracting and seductive. Many men in the world are concerned only with amusing themselves while waiting for death, while others, unknowing but proud, are convinced that they will somehow be able to eternalize their earthly happiness . . . If we are faithful in our meetings with Christ in daily events, little by little he will enlighten us and we will see more clearly. For Christ is less hidden than we think. Our eyes are simply not accustomed to looking at him through the darkness of our senses. Jesus Christ calls us . . . We have only to respond freely to the Savior’s daily invitation.
