Mysteria regni caelorum (Mt 11:25).

Faith is a great mystery. For here on earth many things are hidden from our human sight. Just people who are mystics are able to come closer to the very image of God. However, in the holy sacraments each of us has a share in the divine graces. First of all, in the sacrament of reconciliation we are cleansed from our sins and weaknesses. As a result, we are well prepared to fulfill the will of God. It means that in our Christian life we can follow our Lord, Jesus Christ. Yet, because we are still weak and commit sins, the Son of God gives us himself in the holy Eucharist. Thus, we are being consecrated through the offering of his Body and Blood. Later, we are also invited to meditate and contemplate the great mysteries of our faith. During such a prayer, we may experience the goodness and sweetness of the Holy Spirit abiding in our hearts. Consequently, we start singing songs of praise and hymns to our God. For we are inwardly convinced of the fire of eternal love. Eventually, we become witnesses of Christ's kindness and truth in the world. Therefore we say: "Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom".
