Bono fructificantes (Col 1:10)

Christians do not cease praying. In every situation they keep in mind that the Lord is present. Moreover, they are filled with the knowledge of the Holy Spirit who moves them from the very morning until night. 
God the Father has put in them all spiritual wisdom so they act with dignity and prudence. In their behaviour they resemble the life of the Son of God. Accordingly they are pleasing to all the people and bear good fruit. The Holy Spirit strengthens them with the divine power and they work patiently with all endurence in every circumstances. 
Christians are fulfilled with the Spirit of joy even if their lives seem to be hard and difficult. Nonetheless, they keep giving thanks to the Father for all the gifts and especially for their salvation. Living on the earth, they walk in the light though the powers of darkness want to overcome them. 
They are always focused on the Lord who has delivered them from evil and prepared them place in the Kingdom of God. Therefore, with the divine grace they keep doing good and love all sisters and brothers wholeheartedly.

Spiritus super me (Lc 4:18)

As human beings we are connected with people but also with the Lord. Therefore, we need to find time for our beloved ones and for the Lord who has loved us. While we spend time in the community of believers, we hear the Lord speaking to us. He reminds that his Holy Spirit abides in our hearts. Also he teaches that we are beloved children of God the Father. We are called to live in the divine light and love our sisters and brothers wholeheartedly.
Every day Jesus Christ walks with us and supports us, especially if we pray sincerely and open our soul for his grace. Consequently, we are able to recognize his presence in our friends and relatives. We don't look at them as they were the ordinary people but as they truly are the children of God. For sure, accepting this fact is not easy because all of us make mistakes and hurt each other. However, if we forgive ourselves and others their guilt, we start to live a holy and peaceful life.

Testes estis (1 Tes 2:10)

The main Christian task is proclaiming the Gospel of God. Nothing else is such an important and urgent issue. Therefore, working night and day we don't forget to preach the Good News by our deeds and words. We are witnesses for our sisters and brothers who do not know how much God the Father loves them. Through our behaviour and attention we make them feel the divine love. 
We try to live as Christ lived and treat all the people as parents treat their children with love. Thus, we exhort and encourage them to walk in a manner worthy of the God's children. As members of the Christian family we rejoice in the Kingdom of God and build the Christian community on the earth. 
All the time we keep contact with the Lord and all the believers. Moreover, every day we grow receiving the word of God which works in us. We accept this holy word which makes miracles in our lives. Consequently, the love of God is truly perfected in all of us.

Facilius est camelum (Mt 19:24)

We sometimes think that richness equals happiness. However, it is not true. The goods which we receive are helpful but they cannot make us happy. It happens that a person is wealthy but feels lonely and unhappy at the same time. Since the people become joyful when they are rich in their souls.
The Son of God reminds that the true happiness is strongly connected with salvation. Nothing else is such an important issue in one's life. The human beings experience spiritual joy when they discover that the heavenly Father always takes care of them and looks at them. They are glad when they hear God speak to their hearts and know that everything is possible for their God.
Accordingly, everyone who follows the God's commandments receives the abundance of his gifts. Here on the earth the man of God knows that all the people are his sisters and brothers. Although some of them are good and some are not, everybody is loved by God the Father. Therefore, our task is to accept this truth and become similar to Jesus Christ.

Sinite parvulos (Mt 19:14)

God the Father loves his children and blesses them through his Son Jesus Christ. In this way, he teaches us what is most important in our lives. We are to love and bless our sisters and brothers every day and in every place. It's not something difficult to do. We just need our hands to be ready for good deeds, our lips that want to say blessings and pray for the needy. On the other hand, we are often the ones who need support, but we often forget or even do not want to ask for it. But Jesus is very kind and gentle. He invites us to come and embraces us with his brotherly love. Moreover, he reminds us that we are the children of the heavenly Kingdom. Here on the earth, we only start our journey towards the place which is our home. Obviously, we are not saints but we should do our best to become holier and holier. If we accept his blessing and allow the Holy Spirit to abide in our souls, we are able to share the divine gifts with others. Thus, we are the true disciples of Christ who act in the same way as he behaved.

Capilli numerati (Mt 10:30)

Heavenly father knows everything and nothing is hidden from him. If he has to know everything, he has to be present everywhere. That means there is no particle of creation devoid of God. When Christ tells us that we are worth more than many sparrows, he points out at our higher consciousness that distinguishes us from the rest of the animals and plants. God wishes that in our free will through our consciousness we reach and merge with him. Jesus tells us that since God knows everything, there is nothing we can call to God’s attention. He knows our every thought, word, deed, dream, feeling, virtue and vice as well. This knowledge leads us to a total surrender and comforts us in times of trials and troubles. In our human frailty, we may fail to understand or give understanding to others, but God does never fails!
It is so clear in his great design we are born to particular parents in a particular society and environment. It is he who directs significant people and events into our lives. He knows our every need, even before we ask. Therefore, it is foolish to sit before the Lord with our begging bowls asking him to satisfy our innumerable earthly needs and wants. Let us humbly submit ourselves to his divine will and say, “Lord I gratefully accept all that you have given me without any regret and I say yes to all that is in store for me in the days to come.” Let us live every moment knowing that we are precious to our God and he provides us with everything in his own time.

De vultu tuo (Ps 17:2)

Let us seek the face of Christ. We know that it is possible to find him and to abide in him. The Lord can be found only if we live in justice and pray ardently from our lips, without deceiving. Our Lord wants to be with us and in our hearts. However, it depends on us whether our thoughts are pure.
The Holy Spirit can act through us when our souls are clean. For this reason, as fragile and weak human beings, we should very often ask for forgiveness and God's grace. We are unable to sanctify ourselves on our own.
Therefore, day by day, we cry to the Lord who answers us. Although our prayers are not always correct, we do not give up. We pray the Lord to incline his ear and to kindly look upon us. Moreover, we believe that he can offer us his blessings and mercy.
As the Lord's followers, we flee from our foes under and find shelter under his divine protection. We hide ourselves in the shadow of his arms. We are always accepted as his beloved friends and satisfied in his presence.
