07 JULY 2017 – Those distant from the Christian faith

Let us never forget that our joy is Jesus Christ — his faithful and inexhaustible love.

When a Christian becomes sad, it means that he has distanced himself from Jesus.

But then we must not leave him alone! We should offer him Christian hope — with our words, yes, but more with our testimony, with our freedom, with our joy.[1]

Let us pray that our brothers and sisters who have strayed from the faith, through our prayer and witness to the Gospel, may rediscover the beauty of the Christian life.[2]
