The elevation of holy cross

 

We need to be in such a spirit, as if today was the last day at our disposal. And let us live according- ly. Indeed, every present moment is at our disposal, whereas the very next minute after that is not. And without fear, here and now, let us wish to stand be- fore God in absolute trust.

God wants to save us and this is why this world exists. This is why we exist as a nation, this is why we live in this country, this is why things happen to us and this is why we are here. If God allows us to go on living we can be potentially saved, and that’s true for every single one of us. That’s why we should do our duty in this life. But in order to do it right, we have to rouse and awaken ourselves.

God wants to fill His kingdom, His paradise with holy and saved souls. Would we like to be among them?
